"I think it took me several months to actually realize that I will live here for one year in this beautiful country. And it really is beautiful, not just the beaches and palm trees which keep make me feel like I am on holiday, even the people are much more open and friendly than back home.  During my time here I have been involved in many sporting activities like volleyball, football and snowboarding and even tried rugby, so life in New Zealand became normal. That’s probably why I don´t really miss my old life back in Germany. I am too busy doing fun stuff in and outside school. Now, as my time at Whakatane High is nearly over, I realise how fast the time has flown by and at the same time how many awesome experiences I have had. The memories will last a lifetime."

"I had the pleasure to attend Whakatane High School for more than a year as an international exchange student, and it was an amazing and uncomparable experience. In the last year, I not only improved my English quite a lot, I also got also involved with a new, unique culture, rowed successfully at different national competitions, and last of all I got to know a whole bunch of special people.  Many of them became good friends and a few I can now call my second family."
