International Students/Opportunities

Hosting opportunities.

Each year MIS hosts groups from Makuhari and Meisei Gakuin schools in Japan. This is a great opportunity to experience another culture without leaving the country. Host families enjoy the opportunity to showcase NZ and our community, and it can spark an interest in travel in your child.

Cultural Experiences.

We believe it is important for our children to have an awareness and understanding of other cultures in orcer to become globally minded citizens. At M.I.S. we offer a number of international opportunities that your child can become involved in. Currently we offer experiences with Japanese, Korean and French cultures.

Japanese Cultural Exchange

In March we host our Japanese sister school - Shibuya Makuhari Junior High School for 12 days. This is an opportunity for your family to host a student, share our Kiwi culture and learn about another. Approximately 55 intermediate students across the Waikato, return in September to Makuhari for two weeks. For those children interested in this once in a lifetime opportunity, the cost is approximately $3500.

New Caledonia Language Experience

Experience a taste of Europe and immerse yourself in the French language and culture - only two and a half hours away. Students who take up this opportunity will attend weekly French lessons in order to be able to support their 7 day experience on this beautiful Pacific Island. The cost for this trip is approximately $2400.
