Pastoral Care of Domestic Students

The Education (Pastoral Care of Domestic Tertiary Students) Interim Code of Practice 2019 (the interim Code) came into effect on 1 January 2020.

The interim Code sets out a general duty of pastoral care that tertiary education providers have for domestic tertiary students.

The general duty of pastoral care under the Code covers physical safety, access to advice and support services, physical and mental health support, freedom from discrimination and racism, support for transition to tertiary study, and the opportunity to take part in decision making on support services.

To fully support our students, the School observes the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of Domestic Tertiary Students published by the Ministry of Education.

The Code is available below, on request at the School or from the New Zealand Ministry of Education website.

A safe and supportive learning environment

The property management and maintenance contractors conduct regular inspection of the school premises and necessary repairs to ensure safety of the building. If you spot any dangers and damages in the school premises, please report to the administration office.

Lunchtime forums or social activities are held regularly for students to build relationships among themselves and meet external professionals such as acupuncture practitioners.

Assistance for students to meet their basic needs

If you need help in applying for student loans and allowances, please contact the Student Support Officer.

If you need information on available parking space around the school campus, please contact the administration office.

Lockers at the student lounge are available for students to store personal stuff.

Physical and mental health of students

Students are welcome to join extracurricular classes including Qigong and Taiji to help improve physical or mental health and wellbeing.

Students with health issues can discuss with teachers who are professional acupuncturists or/and make a booking on acupuncture treatment in the student clinics.

Progress and personal development of students

A monthly academic progress report will be sent to you for you to keep track on your progress of study for improvement.

Student voice

You are most welcome to discuss your concerns regarding practices that influence your study, learning environment, and pastoral care with our Student Support Officer, Academic Leader or Chief Executive Officer. Your evaluation on individual courses will be collected close to the end of each semester on course content, workload, assessment, quality of teaching and so on. Results will be passed to the teachers, Academic Leader, and Chief Executive Officer for consideration
