Hi I'm Toshimtsu, an International Student, from Japan.
At first I was worried about coming to school, because I would be alone in the English speaking world, but Waitakere College teachers and students were a good support to me.
Firstly, if we had any difficulty or problem in the lesson, the teacher taught patiently until I understood.
Secondly, when I eat lunch on the field, many friends ask me "Do you want to eat lunch together?" So I can talk to friends a lot of the time.
This makes me happy in my school life. I also try a lot of things, because teachers challenge us. I'm very happy at Waitakere College.
I had a great time in homestay and really loved my family. They took me sea fishing on their boat, I love fishing!
