The School Year

All New Zealand schools have a four-term year. The year begins near the beginning of February and ends in early December for the junior school and mid-November for senior students. Senior exams are held throughout November and early December. We strongly recommend that students arrive in time for the start of the school year, when course work begins.  

Orientation

A 2 day Orientation Programme is held in February and July to introduce students to daily life at Logan Park, select courses, enrol in sports and music lessons, arrange school uniform, meet your house group and a bus tour around Dunedin city.
