Students from Norway

Former Norwegian international students share their thoughts

Heey!! I’m Ingrid and I go to Katikati College, today its only 5 days left of my year here WOW, it all went SO fast! I can remember when I first came here in July and was so nervous to go to school, wondering if I was gonna have anyone to talk to. But everyone at Katikati college was so nice and so interested in where we were from, what countries and what language we speak ”CAN YOU SPEAK SOME NORWEGIAN?!” everyone was asking, haha. This year has definitely been the best year of my life. I’m so glad I chose to on exchange. It’s true what they say, it’s a life in a year. I’ve had so much fun and met so many people that I’ll never forget. Thank you so much to everyone that has been so nice and welcomed me in to your lives, you’ve been so nice and friendly and I really don’t wanna leave you guys. I’ve also been to so many nice places here in New Zeeland, but Waihi beach and Raglan is my absolute favourite. I’m so happy to call Waihi beach my second home now, thanks to my lovely host family! It’s so weird to think that I’m going back to my life in Norway now, but I’ll be back as soon as possible!!

Hei! Jeg heter Ingrid og går på Katikati college, jeg har nå vært her I 1 år og det har gått så sinnsykt fort, helt sykt å tenke på at jeg skal hjem om 6 dager.. Året mitt har helt klart vært det beste året I livet mitt, alle menneskene jeg har møtt og min fantastiske vertsfamilie har gjort livet mitt her så bra. Jeg angrer ikke et sekund på at jeg dro på utveksling, det er faktisk den beste besluttelsen jeg har tatt. Waihi beach er mitt andre hjem nå og jeg vet at jeg skal tilbake hit så fort som mulig!!
