Pastoral Care

At Rototuna Junior High School, we are committed to providing an inclusive environment where our international students feel valued, respected, and supported. Our international students come all over the world. We celebrate and embrace diversity at our school. We also recognise that our international students face a variety of challenges as they are becoming familiar with a new school and are settling into a new country. We are here to offer guidance, support, and encouragement whenever needed. Quality pastoral care is an integral part of the international student experience. 


Each student at RJHS is allocated an advisory class and an advisor. Our students stay with the same advisor for the duration of their time at RJHS. This ensures students are able to form a strong connection with their advisor and the other students in their advisory class. We also have an International Student Coordinator dedicated to helping our international students.

International Student Coordinator

Kia ora!


As the International Student Coordinator, I am here to support you throughout your time at our school. I will be your point of contact for any questions or concerns you may have, and I will work closely with you and your advisor to ensure that you have a successful and rewarding experience. On your first day, you will have an international student orientation. You will also have regular interviews with me so that I can check how you are settling in. If you need extra support with your English, you will be placed in one of our English Language Learning (ELL) classes. I am looking forward to meeting you!
