Meet Gaia, a student from Italy

Gaia came to study at school in New Zealand when she was 16 years old. 

She chose to study in Northland, where she lives with a host family in a house that is just 10 minutes from the beach. 

Here are some of the things she loves about school in New Zealand:

"The teachers really care about you, they always want to be sure that you understand the lesson and if you have any questions they are always ready and happy to answer them."

"Here you can decide what kind of subjects you want to take. If you prefer arts you can choose all your subjects based on art or if you like science subjects you can take physics, biology, chemistry and a lot of others."

"One thing that I found very different from my school back in Italy is that they have a very practical approach to the subjects. You will always do something during the lesson, you won’t be just reading from a book or doing exercises on what you’ve learnt."
