Experiencing Tauranga - welcoming our new families

Last Friday, our new international students enjoyed a special day tour hosted by Education Tauranga, Tauranga City Council and New Zealand Educational Tours.

Our new international students and their parents enjoyed this opportunity to get to know one another, including other international students and parents from other schools. 

We enjoyed local sights including seeing our beautiful city from the top of Summer Hill. We then travelled to Comvita for a private tour where we learnt about the very special role bees play in our lives. A highlight was tasting the many varieties of delicious honey. After this we continued on our bus journey to Maketu Beach where everyone was served their own portion of fish and chips - in true Kiwi style. It was really special having lunch sitting watching the rolling waves crash around us. And it wouldn't have been complete without a hokey pokey icecream to finish!

We ended the day at the Mount hot pools. It was a perfect introduction for our new families to our wonderful city, and a wonderful opportunity for new connections and friendships to be made.
