|I am Tommaso, I am from Verona in Italy. I am only here in New Zealand for a holiday (2 weeks). I wanted to try the NZ school system and so he is here at Arrowtown School. It's very different from the school in Italy. In Italy, schools are big buildings without green places around them. It's very hard. You sit down on your desk with a teacher in front of you and you mustn't speak. There are a lot of subjects and a lot of tests too. I really enjoy school here in Arrowtown because you can speak to your class mates and it's very interactive. Here you can use your PC or IPod while in Italy you only have books. In Italy we don't ski once a week in winter, we have to stay in class every day. I really like the school here and I really will enjoy the rest of my time here in Arrowtown.|
|I am Bryan, and I am from Taiwan. I know about here because my cousin went here last year and he said being here was fantastic. So that is why I am here. The schools here are very different for me, the classrooms are more colourful. In Taiwan we wake up at 6:00am and go to school at 7:30am and I get to sleep at 1:00am. Here I sleep well here and I am happy here. At this place, everything is so beautiful, the mountains, the park ... and the air is fresh here. The most important part is that we can ski here and that is very good, because in Taiwan is to hot for skiing.|
I love here very much.
|I'm Taja. I'm 12 years old and I'm from Slovenia. My dad is a coach for QAST. That's why we came to New Zealand. Because I will miss a month of school in Slovenia I need to go to Arrowtown Primary School. Arrowtown School is a very good school. It's easier than in Slovenia. New Zealand is a beautiful country and I hope I can come back next year.|
