New Zealand is a beautiful country. I have experienced happiness, sadness, fear and a lot of smiles. I think I have adapted to New Zealand life and Upper Hutt College will stay in my mind for ever.
The first day I came here I noticed that the school was really different from school back home. I saw that everybody was moving everywhere. I learnt that each subject is in a new classroom. That is different from my country. In the first week it was really hard for me to find my classes.
Kiwi people like to play sports like football, hockey and rugby. So the school has two gyms and very big sports fields for PE classes. Surrounding the school are some hills which make the school look more beautiful.
Teachers at Upper Hutt College are really nice and kind. They help me with everything. I have gained a lot of knowledge from them. My English is improving every day.
In conclusion, I feel very interested in Upper Hutt College. I have discovered many things at school, and the school has many more things that I want to discover.
There are a lot of things that I like about Upper Hutt College. I like the way teachers teach us. They always take good care of students. Teachers are the key which can open the door to knowledge.
I like the way of studying at Upper Hutt College. We don't stay in any class for a long time. We move after every period. It makes you feel better after every class. At lunchtime I can play soccer on the field. I don't have that kind of thing in my country. I can run and also have fresh air. It helps me relax and even make more friends.
Students at Upper Hutt College are very friendly. Most of them talk freely to International students. They do a lot of things to help us. In my class, whenever I don't understand anything I can ask my classmates and they try their best to help me.
In New Zealand I have learnt about life. We help people but we don't need to get anything back. I also like Upper Hutt College because it has a lot of students from other countries at the school. I can learn about these other cultures.
