International Student Testimonials:

"Hi, my name Rose Do, I'm from Vietnam. I started in Year 10 at Wellington Girls’ College this year.

 In my opinion, when I study in New Zealand, I'm encouraged to think freely and always receive support from teachers to promote my best ability. I became more confident in learning through speaking and when I work in a group, my friends always support me so I can say my opinion. People in New Zealand are very friendly, my teachers, my friends and my host homestay always help me so I'm happy to be here."
