Founded in 1988, New Zealand Korean School of Wellington has the longest history among Korean schools in New Zealand and is the only Korean school in New Zealand that has independent facilities with a support from the NZ Wellington Korean Association.

New Zealand Korean School of Wellington has focused on providing experience of learning Korean language and culture to descendants of Korean expatriates in Wellington and is supported by the Overseas Korean Foundation in South Korea.

New Zealand Korean School of Wellington offers Korean language classes for children from 4 years of age as well as college students. Class for college students was first opened in 2001 to deliver various contents of Korean culture and history and to encourage college students to identify and take advantage of their multicultural background.

New Zealand Korean School of Wellington has been expanding its boundary of educational services. 2012 was the first year of opening an adult class for non-native speakers of Korean. Starting with one student at the beginning, the class has had its popularity and now we have students from diverse range of background - from college students to adult in public and private sectors in Wellington – and interests – Korean pop to Korean history. We also provide Korean cultural experience programmes for local schools in Wellington.

New Zealand Korean School of Wellington will prepare our students to go out into the world as confident Korean New Zealanders by being fluent in Korean language and developing identities as Korean through Korean history and culture, and as young diplomats who will spread the unique culture and tradition of Korea. Ultimately their potentials developed at New Zealand Korean School of Wellington will contribute to both countries of Korea and New Zealand. Thank you for visiting this website and your visit to New Zealand Korean School of Wellington is always more than welcome.
