Haruka Kataoka - Japan

My home country is Japan. I visited Villa Maria College and knew straight

away that this was where I wanted to be for my education. The teachers

are so friendly and the students make me feel very welcome. I like the way

that this school is only for girls; it is a safe and kind place. I also like the way

we are taught moral values through the Catholic religion of the College.

There are many opportunities for us; I like trying all the different sports here

at Villa. I have achieved very well in my studies with my favourite subjects

being social studies and music. New Zealand is a beautiful country and I

love the green grass and snowy mountains.

Jinah Park – South Korea

I came to Villa Maria College when I was 14 years old and spoke very little

English. One of the reasons my parents and I chose Villa was because it has a

history of high academic results. I have been very happy here; my teachers are

so helpful and always support me. I have had many great experiences here

like going on the Villa camp in Year 10. We had fun and it gave me a chance

to really get to knowmy classmates. I also like the way we are put into House

groups for different activities. Houses are made up of girls from all different

Year levels so you feel like it is one big family. I am looking forward to going to

University when I finish Villa Maria College.

Antonia Zwiener - Germany

My time in New Zealand so far has been awesome. The lifestyle is really

different to the German one but I like it. I really love school here and have felt

so comfortable ever since the first day. The staff are friendly and helpful and

encourage us to get involved. I’ve tried many types of New Zealand food like

L&P, pineapple lumps, lollie cake and hokey-pokey ice-cream. It all tastes so

nice, especially the lollie cake!

While I have been in New Zealand I have been lucky enough to do some

sightseeing and I am amazed at how beautiful this country is.
