Message from the Director

Kia OraLisa Profile Pic, and a very warm welcome to all our past, present and future international students at Waimea College.

My name is Lisa Campbell. I am the Director of International Students here at Waimea and a passionate advocate of international education as a means of personal growth and discovery. My own experiences overseas have made me the person I am today and armed me with vital qualities like confidence, independence, adaptability, resiliency and a sense of adventure. I firmly believe that the experience of international travel is a crucial aspect of personal development and know that when you select Waimea College as your international school of choice, you will be making a wonderful investment in your future and yourself.

I have worked on a number of international programmes in the past and consider it an honour to be a part of sculpting your experiences here in New Zealand. I have a background in Outdoor Education and business management, and am a qualified teacher with a decade of teaching experience both in New Zealand and overseas. I love this wonderful country we live in and I know you will too!

As a prospective international student, my commitment to you is to guide and shape your experience of New Zealand into one that is safe, filled with unforgettable memories and packed with experiences that will become an integral part of who you are. I will always strive to maintain a caring and supportive connection between you, your parents and your homestay families; and work hard to ensure you and your international peers are effectively integrated into the Waimea College family.

Selecting an overseas school to study at is a big decision. I suggest you take a good look around our website and encourage you to make contact with me should you require any further information about our school. I look forward to hearing from you!
