On arrival at the school the student is to present his/her passport to the school Principal for verification of their identity and student visa/permit to study in New Zealand. Copies will be held by the school office along with all parent contact details.
Accompanying parents staying in New Zealand while students are attending St Pius X School are to provide details of their immigration status. A copy of their passport and visa will be held by the school office.
Should the student's and/or the parents immigration status change the school is to be notified as soon as possible. If the student becomes a domestic student during the contracted time of being an International Student a refund may be applied for in writing to the School Board of Trustees. If a refund is obtained the contracted placement will be revoked and application for enrolment as a domestic student will be required to be made to the School Principal. There is no guarantee that the application for enrolment to study, as a domestic student will be granted.
If a student leaves or ceases to attend at St Pius X School for any reason, New Zealand Immigration will be advised.
