I have scoured NZIS for you and found the answer. A visitor's visa allows you to study in NZ on this visa for a MAX of 3 months. However if you wish to apply for junior/intermediate or any type of 'regular' schooling you will have to apply for a student visa/permit for you kids. The kids are not allowed to do the latter '3 month thing' in normal schooling So the answer is no unfortunately. You will have to apply for the latter thru the NZIS. You however could do a 3 month course of some ilk. I am surprised they will allow that on a tourist visa tbh.

The kids will be fine for six months. Try to do it over your summer holidays. You may want to do some "home schooling" while you are here to keep them reading and doing some math.
