International Students

Halswell School is an exciting and vibrant full primary (decile 10) school, Year 0 to Year 8 (5 to 13 years of age), located in a beautiful safe setting on the southwestern edge of Christchurch City in the South Island.

Our school provides an inclusive, nurturing family friendly environment in which the mastering of the English Language is achieved. Special strengths are the high standards achieved by our self-motivated students academically as well as in performing arts and sporting challenges.

We are proud to offer our International Students the very best study, social and family environment available.
