Our International Office is staffed by a caring and professional team who are dedicated to looking after our International students. In addition to the International staff, students are also cared for and guided by our Divisional Deans. Divisions (North, South, West and Senior) are staffed by 11 Deans, four Divisional Principals and four Counsellors. This number of carers ensures that our students are well supported throughout their time here at Burnside High School.
International Student Leaders, sometimes referred to as Buddies, are also an important part of the support network. These 21 students are selected on merit and act as big sisters and big brothers to our International students. They perform countless tasks throughout the year in an attempt to make the transition to New Zealand as seamless as possible.
