After a successful trial we are offering students and families the opportunity to have hosted school tours with us! In essence, these are video calls via What’s app, Zoom, Skype etc. Students and their families have the chance to talk with International staff, get a tour of the school and (when available) have a chat with a current student from their country. Seeing the school facilities, classrooms and the students can be really interesting and parents have appreciated being able to talk with the people who will be responsible for their child.
We are happy to welcome applications for:
Whether you are here for a ten week experience overseas or hoping to graduate from BDSC and continue studying in New Zealand, your time with us takes advantage of everything the school and New Zealand has to offer. To help you, we arrange a series of trips during the school year to amazing parts of our country.
Our trip to the Coromandel is a part of our amazing End-of-Year Program. For many of our students this trip is the absolute highlight of their time at our school.
On our Bay of Islands trip we go sand boarding, take a dolphin cruise and see the largest Kauri tree in the world. This amazing trip is a great way to showcase some of the things that make New Zealand special!
Rotorua is a great way to showcase the best of traditional Māori culture. Students get to learn the haka, eat a hangi, and enjoy the signature sights (and smells) of “Roto-Vegas”!
Dan Cullum and his friends are on a quest to travel the length of the second longest river in the USA on a boat made from recycled and reclaimed materials. Their goal is to produce a documentary. Its purpose is to follow the challenges of a journey on trash, to unearth the reason behind why the Mississippi River is one of the most polluted in the world, and to tell the story of how local communities along the river have been affected by its pollution and their efforts to clean and restore it.
Our administration hours are Monday to Friday, 8 am – 4 pm (New Zealand Standard Time).
We will endeavour to respond on the next college day should your enquiry be outside of these hours.
