The International Services programme at Kristin covers two areas; International Students enrolled at Kristin for varying lengths of study, and our International Dovetail Exchanges, developed through arrangements with partner schools around the world.

Recognition of Kristin as a leading institution with superb facilities and courses, together with quality specialist pastoral care, has attracted an increasing number of overseas students to the school, either as fee-paying students or reciprocal exchange participants through our Dovetail Exchanges. Gains in cultural diversity and empathy and the development of an international perspective are a wonderful benefit enjoyed by our whole school community.

This rich and diverse culture is reflected in our International Services Centre. This facility functions as an administration hub as well as an orientation meeting place, drop-in centre for on-going and daily support of the international students, and as a hosting venue for parents, homestays, educational agencies and overseas school exchanges and tours.

The International Services Centre also works perfectly as a planning space for parent and student committees. We support a number of ethnic parent groups at Kristin that meet regularly to exchange information and support each other in their first language. They also organise and support various school events and help international students who are away from their homes. There are Chinese, Korean and Japanese Parents Committees, which form a part of Kristin Family and Friends (KFF).

Kristin is a signatory to the Ministry of Education Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students. As such, the school is subject to a six-monthly review of its policy and practices.
