Our International Team
Lisa Campbell – Director of International students
It is my pleasure to be responsible for the international student programme at Waimea College. I have taught Outdoor Education on many international programmes in the past and love working with and being responsible for Waimea’s overseas students. It is an honour to learn about and get to know these brave and adventurous individuals; and to guide their experiences of our school, our community and our country. As a student at Waimea College you will see a lot of me. I will be there to help you celebrate your successes, face your challenges, and I take overall responsibility for ensuring your time in New Zealand is safe and positive. My door will always be open to Waimea College’s international students and I am looking forward to meeting you soon.
