International Students Orientation Day

On Monday we welcomed all the new International Students with an Orientation Day. 

They spent some time exploring the central city and getting to know what it has to offer. 

It was a hot day but they managed to climb the Mount and were able to have a swim afterwards in the salt water pools in Mount Maunganui.   

Thank you to all the students for being so well behaved. We hope you had a great time!
