My Journey to Waitakere College - Auckland

date:Sep 05,2013 source:意腾留学网 editorial staff:linan clicks:

Hi all! I am Li WenBin from China.  I have chosen to further my study from Singapore to New Zealand. Currently I am studying in Waitakere College, Auckland. The moment when my plane had touched down in Auckland International Airport, I knew that I have made the right choice of studying  Waitakere College because every details of this trip  had been well taken care of!  
 
Mrs Frances Thyberg (Student & Homestay Coordinator) arranged a Chinese teacher, Mr. Zhen, to pick me up from the airport so that I could feel comfortable in a strange environment. My parents, family members and myself  were touched by her kind and considerate arrangement. On my way to my homestay family, Mr Zhen was caring and briefed me about New Zealand culture. I was also informed by Mr Zhen that a liaison officer was appointed by the school to take care of  my academics and accommodation needs but I could also contact him if I need any assistance.

I was arranged to stay with the Cenan - Valeanu family. Otilia (my homestay mother) and  Razvan (my homestay father) have an adult daughter who is now studying ballet and dance in Australia. They are very caring, fun-loving and friendly family. I admire the family bonding that they have. Their warm reception makes me feel that I am also one of their family members. I am thankful to my homestay parents and Waitakere College for being helpful and thoughtful.

My accommodation is about 3 minutes walking distance to the school. My first day in school was amazing. The school is easy access to excellent community, sport and recreational facilities, parks, library, entertainment, business and transport centres.  There are also spectacular beaches and areas of native bush  whereby a short car  ride from the school campus.

All teachers and schoolmates are very friendly, approachable and fun. During the orientation,  I was told that many students, including international students, participate with high levels of success in a wide range of sports. And Waitakere College is widely known for its performance in music, arts and cultural activities.
To ensure that I had adapted the new environment well, Mrs Frances Thyberg had  brought me to the in-house doctor for a regular  check on my health.  Once again, this kind gesture had brought much appreciation from my family members in China, They are grateful that the school has really shown concern and care to all international students. Their relentless efforts have helped many international students (like me) assimilate  well in New Zealand culture.

From  the bottom of my heart,  I truly am happy, appreciative and over-whelmed to be a student of Waitakere College.  The constant care and concern from my teachers, classmates and friends will spur me to  do my best academically.

Come see my life in New Zealand and share my joy!!!
This is how big my school is!  We are fortunate  to have a large school field so students can  play all kind of sports during lunchtime and after school.
