Dio's Bel Suono Choir, directed by Mrs Maria Colvin, has been selected as one of the top 24 secondary choirs in New Zealand from a pool of around 250!

We welcome International Students into our school community and value the rich cultural mix they bring to our learning environment. We have an excellent reputation for quality education and care of our International Students so you can be confident that your daughter will be well looked after in a nurturing and welcoming environment.

International Students either stay in the boarding house, with homestay families, or make their own arrangements with family. 

Our Dean of International Students and Pastoral team provides students with a comprehensive orientation of the school upon their arrival and they have access to small ESOL classes where they can develop their English language skills.

We are a signatory to the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students. 

We welcome applications for short or long term placements at our school. To find out more about studying at Waikato Diocesan School for Girls as an international student, click on the following links:
