Located in the Bay of Plenty on New Zealand's North Island West Coast, Waihi College enjoys huge grounds and spectacular natural scenery. We have our own kiwifruit orchard, farm unit, great facilities, and outstanding sports, academic, and arts courses. With Waihi Beach and Tauranga Harbour at our doorstep, we specialize in the outdoors. Our outdoor education and sports programmes are among the best in New Zealand and feature surfing, mountain biking, climbing, and kayaking right at our doorstep. Our English language courses cater to learners of all abilities and our excellent homestay services ensure all international students receive the very best of care.
Waihi College values the safety, wellbeing and happiness of our international students very highly.
