Waihi College is a co-educational school, 10 minutes drive from stunning Waihi Beach and 45 minutes from the vibrant city of Tauranga. With this unique environment we can offer a broad curriculum (both in and out of the classroom) including surfing, scuba diving, agriculture and horticulture. We encourage academic excellence and pride ourselves on developing confident, lifelong learners who are well prepared for their future. With a roll of 750 students we are big enough to offer great choices and small enough to be incredibly friendly.
Waihi College values the safety, wellbeing and happiness of our international students very highly. With a fulltime Director and Homestay Manager onsite daily, we have the ability to provide excellent pastoral care and support. In addition, we love to organise trips, activities, tours and a fantastic End of Year Programme

Accommodation The International Department organises homestay accommodation for our students. Homestays are selected with the individual students needs and preferences considered. Locations include Waihi township, Waihi Beach and rural settings. As our community is relatively small our homestay families are well known and all offer a safe and welcoming environment.
