Duration 150 - 330 Days
Schools Assistants in New Zealand have varied and exciting roles working in either a day or boarding school, as you will mainly be responsible for assisting staff in their daily duties.

New Zealand rewards volunteers with a “can do” attitude.  You will be expected to throw yourself into all aspects of school life and be positive, friendly and helpful to the staff and students you are working with.  The schools will want to make the most of whatever skills you can bring them, be that in sports, music, art, drama or academically.

 

Roles explained
Schools placements involve working in boarding schools supervising the pupils with their homework, assisting them in the boarding house, helping teachers in the classroom and organising extra-curricular activities. Life as a volunteer in a boarding school is not a 9-5 existence as you may be asked to supervise in the early mornings, ensuring the dorms are tidy and the students are ready for breakfast. In the evenings you might be asked to assist with prep and supervise extra-curricular activities. The same is true of weekend duty when you may take pupils on outings.

 

Accommodation and food
Volunteers in boarding schools can have their own room in the boarding house or a flat provided by the school, which you share with fellow volunteers and/or staff. Those in day schools will live with a host family.
