Christchurch Girls’ High School recognises that, due to circumstances beyond her control, an international student may have to withdraw from the school during the school year.
1. To ensure that international students fully understand the consequences of withdrawing from CGHS during the school year.

NO refund will be made for any student who withdraws after the last school day of Term 1.

NO refund will be made at any time to students who acquire Permanent Residence Status in any form (PR, visa, a parent work or study permit) after having enrolled here.

Offer of a place
Your course must be approved by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA).
If you break any of these conditions we may revoke your permit.
International students may purchase their own insurance or the school will purchase on their behalf.
It should be noted that costs such as medical treatment in New Zealand and medical evacuation or repatriation can be prohibitive. It is therefore imperative that sums insured for these benefits should be set at an appropriately high figure - ideally, this figure should be unlimited although the school will allow figures that it deems to be sufficiently high.
The policy should:
a. Commence the minute the student leaves home for the airport on their way to New Zealand.
Ideally, the policy should have ‘unlimited cover’ as very large sums can be incurred in these situations.
Insurance policies for International students should be obtained from companies with a credit rating no lower than A from Standard and Poors, or B+ from AM Best.
If the insurer is an overseas company, the school requires students to provide policy details in English so that it may ensure that all the necessary requirements are met.
If, prior to enrolment, it is decided that a student does not have adequate insurance, the student will be required to take out additional cover to meet the standards set down by the school.
