International Student Welcome

Each year we celebrate the arrival of international students in Wellington with a fun afternoon of activities to introduce you to New Zealand culture and start your academic year on an exciting note.

This free event includes light refreshments, photobooths and lots of fun activities! Wellington City Mayor Justin Lester will be in attendance to wish you a warm welcome on behalf of the city.

This year we are running several exciting competitions with some great prizes up for grabs. There will be a count the jellybean competition, a chance to spin the wheel and collect your prize, there will be an inflatable target and if you hit the bullseye you will win a prize, we will be running a social media hashtag competition and if you come along in traditional clothes from your country then you may also win a prize.


Date: Wednesday 21 February 2018
Time: 12.15pm - 2.30pm
Location: Michael Fowler Centre

School students should talk to your international coordinators about attending the event. All other students will receive invitations to register for the event in January 2018.
