At the end of Term Two we will sadly farewell seven international students who will be returning to resume schooling in their home countries. Johanna Willenbrink from Germany, Felipe and Rafael Ferraz and Renan Saab from Brazil, and Minjae Kim, Jimin Lim and Eunvin Oh from Korea. We wish them well for their return home and thank them for the contribution they have made to the Aquinas community.
Over the next term we will welcome a new group of students from an interesting mix of nationalities. Arnaut Leyre from France, Amaia Elcano and Eduardo Torres from Spain, and Jonas Elben from Switzerland. We will also host a group of fifteen Japanese students for one week in early August.
International students add a wonderful cultural dimension to our school environment and enjoy all the new experiences that Aquinas College provides. Thank you to their NZ buddies and host families who help them settle in so well and support them during their time living in Tauranga.
