Student Stories

For most students, coming to live and study in New Zealand is one of the biggest personal challenges they've ever had to face. Until they have to leave again.

"Everybody here is so open and friendly. At Whangarei Girls' High School everybody has tried to give me the best time possible, and when I needed help it was always given to me.  It is difficult to integrate into a new country and a new culture, but everybody at school has made me feel at home."

"The first weeks were exciting and exhausting but I soon started to love my completely new and different life here. School, friends and of course my really nice host family, who I really want to thank for everything, helped me to become part of a real kiwi life. Speaking English wasn't a problem any more and I even started dreaming in English."

"I am so happy that I can study at your school. I have tried so many new things in New Zealand. For example, fishing in a boat, patting a sheep and cow, feeding the ducks in Mair Park and playing with fireworks in the garden. Here it is so amazing that I can see many stars at night and smell the fresh air on the road."

"My experience in New Zealand has meant gaining awareness of the world and of myself. It was growth and change, that change has scared me at times but has made me rich and real."
