From New Zealand_Report on St. Mary’s School_180219
Another new report from New Zealand has come to us. Otsuma Nakano has three different exchange educational partner schools in New Zealand, which are New Plymouth Girls' High School, Sacred Heart Girls College, and St. Mary's School. Miyu Asajima, an Year 10th student of Otsuma Nakano, is now studying at St. Mary's School as a pioneer exchange student for its school. She is not staying with her host famliy, but she is now staying at the dormitory of St. Mary's with her fellow international student roommate. Her report goes as follows:
Hello! I am Miyu Asajima, an exchange student from Otsuma Nakano, currently studying in New Zealand. I came to New Zealand three weeks ago. I am getting used to living here with my kiwi friends. I would like to introduce my school life as an exchange student.
My school where I go to now is St. Marys School. There is a dormitory with this school. Of course some students whose homes are close to school go back home every day. Some students are staying at the dormitory only on weekdays and others stay at the dormitory only three days a week, which sounds very interesting to me. However, we, international students, basically stay at the dormitory and once every two weeks, we stay with our host families at their homes.
Some subjects of the study at St. Mary's seem to be simple. For example, even though I do not understand English, I can easily dicipher mathematics. I can do fractions, addition, and subtraction now.
Also, the number of the students in my school is very small. In one class, there are at most approximately 15 students. Sometimes the number of people in one class is as small as 5! So, in St. Mary's school, all of the students are very close and friends with each other although their year are different from each other.
When the school is over, I go to a supermarket nearby with my friends and go to buy a cake and ice cream to eat at night. Sometimes we have our dinner outside.
I remember that I cried on the first day when I came here because I didn’t understanding everything here, but now I have friends and teachers help me with anything. I am gradually getting used to the school life here. I would like to do my best.
Thank you for reading my report! See you again soon.
