Mayoral Welcome Event for International Students

On Monday 27 March Margaret took some of our students to Iona College in Havelock North as part of a wider group of international students studying in Hawkes Bay, to be given a Mayoral Welcome. There were 250 students in attendance.
The Mayors of Napier and Hawkes Bay warmly welcomed our students and we were treated to some Pasifica singing and dancing, then the haka by students at Lindisfarne College. After that our students had their picture taken with the Mayors. What a great opportunity!
The event was facilitated by Learning Hawke’s Bay, the entity made up of institutions like New Horizon College; with international students within the Hawkes Bay region, whose focus is on providing a quality and long-lasting edu-tourism experience for our students.
It was a great success.

Minister for Tertiary Education Visit New Horizon

New Horizon College in Napier was delighted to welcome the Minister for Tertiary Education, Hon Paul Goldsmith, on Thursday 15th June 2017.

Minister Goldsmith met Director Ewen Mackenzie-Bowie, Principal Wayne Dyer, Director of Studies Lindsey Scott, and staff and students of New Horizon on a sunny Hawke’s Bay day, joined staff for lunch and spoke at length to students, staff and homestay providers.  New Horizon College is a member of English New Zealand, on whose behalf the invitation was given, and the visit provided an excellent opportunity for the Minister to see a small regional language school in operation.

New Horizon College contributes some $6m to the Hawke’s Bay region annually and has been providing an enriching cross-cultural contribution to Napier since 1989.

A shout out from the Minister for tertiary Education, Paul Goldsmith.
