  • Christchurch Boys' High School (New Zealand) Professional Squash Player - 2021 British Open Champion

    Christchurch Boys' High School (New Zealand) Professional Squash Player - 2021 British Open Champion

    Congratulations to CBHS Old Boy, Paul Coll winning the 2021 British Squash Open. Paul has created history by becoming the first New Zealand man to win the prestigious British Open squash title.

    His promise began to emerge as a boarder at Christchurch Boys' High School when he was part of a team that won the national secondary schoolboys crown in 2009, and the year following he claimed the New Zealand North Island under-19 title after finishing runner-up in the South Island event.

    Coll, from Greymouth, joins Dame Susan Devoy and Leilani Joyce as the two New Zealand women's winners of the tournament. It capped off a remarkable run at the tournament after his semifinal victory over world No.1 Mohamed ElShorbagy, who had held a 9-1 record over Coll.

    Gap Year in 2021or 22 at The International Travel College of New Zealand?

    Thinking of taking a gap year in 2021? Why not take it at ITC in New Zealand? A gap year can be a fantastic thing - it's a time spent in between different stages of life where you learn, grow, and prepare for the next steps. If you’re ready to spend a year learning, travelling, meeting people, and thinking about what to do next, an ITC qualification could be for you.

    Following a year of study with us, students can sign up for an international exchange with ITC. ITC works with The Broadmoor to place students in overseas jobs, which can range from four months to a full year. Or after studying, students can also go on to work in the industry here in New Zealand, where tourism is already seeing an uptick thanks to the domestic market.

    If you’re ready to spend a year learning, travelling, meeting people, and thinking about what to do next, an ITC qualification could be for you. Get in touch with any questions, or to start the enrolment process!

    Student visa and COVID-19 in New Zealand

    Unfortunately, the New Zealand borders still remain closed to most international students, however they have now opened up a Trans-Tasman bubble. This allows people from Australia to visit New Zealand without the need to quarantine. It is good to see some progress being made to open up New Zealand to the world again.

    Please send your applications through for the second semester of 2021 or the academic year 2022 and we can issue paperwork for you and put you on a waiting list. When we have more confirmation of borders opening we can then progress the applications further. Please know, first come, first served!

Ms Stickley, our Accommodation Manager, also accompanied the team and ensured the girls were well supervised and had nutritional meals.

    New Zealand Border exceptions for a small number of international students with visas

    The New Zealand Government has established a new category that will allow 250 international PhD and postgraduate students to enter New Zealand and continue their studies, in the latest set of border exceptions.

    The exception today is a balanced decision that recognises the vital role international education will play in the recovery and rebuild of New Zealand and the need to continue the fight against the pandemic. It will enable us to welcome back a good portion of those PhD and Masters students who are caught off-shore, and who need to be in New Zealand to complete their work.

    Welcome from Ms Deb Mills Deputy Principal International Newlands College, New Zealand

    Spring is now here in Wellington, giving us a lovely feel that summer is not far away!!!

    Our current students have been outstanding; their wellbeing has been at the forefront of all of our decisions. While they are very sad about not being able to return home for the holidays and connect with their natural parents, family members and friends, our host families have been amazing. They have nurtured them and provided excellent support to them and for this I am most grateful.

    I would like to congratulate the International Students on a very positive term and I look forward to celebrating their successes with them in Term 4.

    2021 NZ$ 16,000 for one academic year + NZ$ 1,000 admin fee (first year only)
