Chris Hart, BA (Hons)
Acting HOD ESOL
My role as International Director is to ensure the International students at Nelson College are happy and successful. I am responsible for all their academic, pastoral and co-curricular needs during their time in New Zealand. To support this I liaise with agents, parents and caregivers both here and overseas to ensure that the students are getting the best educational opportunities from our school. I have been teaching here since 2005, my specialty subject is English.
International Manager & Homestay Coordinator
I have worked at Nelson College for 10 years and thoroughly enjoy working with the International boys.
My role is to process enrolment applications once they have been accepted. I greet the students from Nelson airport and settle them into their accommodation. If boys are in homestay I arrange suitable families, and monitor the families and the boys to make sure the placement is successful. I also help them with opening bank accounts, school uniform requirements, applying for visas and all international boys’ holiday plans.
