Wel­come to the Arthur Street School Inter­na­tion­al page. Chil­dren from all over Duned­in attend our con­veni­ently loc­ated cent­ral city school and enjoy our long tra­di­tion of provid­ing high qual­ity edu­ca­tion in a very caring fam­ily envir­on­ment.

Our school is loc­ated a short walk from the Octa­gon.

Arthur Street School offers a full primary pro­gramme, for new entrants (age 5) to Year 8 (age 12 -13). Our prox­im­ity to sev­er­al preschools, sec­ond­ary schools such as Otago Boys’ High School, Otago Girls’ High School and Kavanagh Col­lege, make us a con­veni­ent school for the whole fam­ily.

Fees for For­eign Fee pay­ing inter­na­tion­al stu­dents are set at $200 per week or $8000 per annum plus GST.

Our school has agreed to observe and be bound by the ‘Code of Prac­tice for Pas­tor­al Care of Inter­na­tion­al Stu­dents’ pub­lished by the Min­istry of Edu­ca­tion. Fees cov­er all tuition fees through­out the year with addi­tion­al charges for edu­ca­tion out­side the classroom (i.e school camps) and sports sub­scrip­tions (for stu­dents who play a sport for a school team in an after school com­pet­i­tion)

We offer a com­pre­hens­ive Eng­lish pro­gramme with a fully qual­i­fied teach­er. Our ESOL teach­er runs group les­sons in the ESOL room or works along­side stu­dents in class. Stu­dents are grouped accord­ing to their age and lan­guage needs. Stu­dents receive 3–4 les­sons with the ESOL teach­er per week.

Arthur Street School offers qual­ity learn­ing pro­grammes to cater for a range of abil­it­ies and needs and has a wide ran­ging cur­riculum cov­er­ing a vari­ety of sport­ing, cul­tur­al and tech­no­logy based activ­it­ies. A full cur­riculum is offered to all stu­dents with a range of tech­no­logy classes avail­able to our seni­or stu­dents. Below is an out­line of the NZ Cur­riculum which states what each area is about and how learn­ing is struc­tured.

Sport­ing Activ­it­ies — Stu­dents learn the skills required for sum­mer and winter sports dur­ing phys­ic­al edu­ca­tion (P.E)  les­sons. Weekly swim­ming les­sons are an import­ant com­pon­ent dur­ing terms 1 and 4.

We hold an annu­al cross coun­try race, ath­let­ic sports and swim­ming sports in which stu­dents of all ages take part in. Stu­dents also have oppor­tun­it­ies to join school sports teams, to play in after school com­pet­i­tions. Our school has had teams entered in com­pet­i­tions for the fol­low­ing sports.
