Most students are not entitled to publicly funded health services while in New Zealand. We require that all International Students have insurance that will cover the cost of medical treatment for the duration of their stay in New Zealand. Travel Insurance is also required to cover travel to and from New Zealand. It is recommended that this be taken out in New Zealand. Proof of Medical Insurance cover must be sighted by the school prior to commencement of study. For students wishing to study at Murrays Bay School the school can arrange health insurance at a competitive rate.


In keeping with government legislation Murrays Bay Primary School will only enrol students who are living with a parent(s) for the duration of their stay at our school.
