While your child is on the tour, they probably won’t be texting or emailing you as often or at all. This is usually because they are out of cellphone coverage, or they are having so much fun with their new found friends. In the unlikely event that something goes wrong, we will notify you or the school. Remember, no news is good news!

Best of all you can be certain your child  will have the time of their lives, make lots of new friends, improving their self-confidence and their English. They’ll remember the tour as the best thing about their time in New Zealand!
