Mt Roskill Grammar School is an excellent choice of school for International students. We are known for high academic standards, offer a variety of musical, sporting and academic opportunities and have a multicultural campus that is welcoming and friendly to students of all cultures. We have an established International Studentsí department and are experienced at helping you settle into a new life in New Zealand. We will introduce you to a buddy who speaks your language and is available for you to ask questions about courses and programmes in the school.
One Year 9 and one Year 10 class follow
an enhanced learning programme in
their core subjects. Students are selected
according to their high level of ability and
commitment to achievement. The classes
are exposed to a wider range of learning
experiences. These students are given the option of sitting NCEA Level 1 Science in Year 10 with the aim of extending their range of subjects in the senior school. All students in Year 10 attempt some NCEA internally assessed standards in English and Mathematics.
The ESL Department provides English language support for students from nonEnglish speaking backgrounds. This support includes vocabulary development, along with listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. An emphasis is also placed on helping students adapt to the New Zealand style of education and appropriate classroom behaviour. Students are tested prior to
starting school to determine their level of need. These students may be placed into full time English language classes, or have ESL as one of their options. As students make progress in the language, they spend less and less time in the department, until they are fully mainstreamed.
