My name is Momo Yoshida. I am a Lincoln High School student from Japan.
I love Lincoln High School. Kiwi people are very nice and kind. I have many Kiwi friends and I have made a best friend as well. When I get in trouble she always helps me.
At Lincoln High School there are also many students from other countries so I can learn many other languages, it is good for me. The teachers are really nice. They are very friendly so I can ask anything easily and they always help me. There are a lot of school trips as Lincoln High School and we can see many different places in New Zealand. I think it is great because we have many good experiences.
Anyway Lincoln High School is awesome.
M name is Mind Jutrakul. I’m a Thai student who studies at a high school in New Zealand. Lincoln High School is the school I’ve chosen to study at. I’ve learned a lot about living overseas by myself. I’ve learned to face problems by myself. In Lincoln there are lots of things I like such as the buildings. I like the teachers in Lincoln. They teach me because they want to not because it’s their duty. They help to understand the lessons. I feel so appreciative of the teachers.
Having friends at Lincoln is very good. People here are very friendly, kind and gentle. They are interested in what I am doing, where I am going and my recommendations. They also help me by answering questions I do not understand.
Having friends from other countries lets me know many things about their lives and also I can learn a little bit of their language for example: Chinese, Japanese, Korean and German.
My favourite thing is the school uniform. I really like the Lincoln High School uniform because I find it suitable for me. It is green so I think it is pretty and vigorous. I also like anything that has the Lincoln Brand on it. It don’t know why I feel proud when I have it on but I do.
In the future if I have opportunities to involve me in the New Zealand life I would like to come back. I think Lincoln High School is the best school to come and study. I love Lincoln High School.
Lots of people might want to know why I chose to come to New Zealand? Why did I have to come so far just to go to school and pay lots of money rather than go to a school in my country? And from all the schools that I could go to, why did I choose Lincoln?
After I finished year 9 in Thailand I decided to come to Lincoln High School. I have liked this school since the moment I walked into this school. It is something that I can’t describe. It is a feeling that you have to come and feel it yourself. This school helped me discover what I want to do in the future and guide me to it.
The teachers are very supportive. I have freedom to choose my subjects and it is something that I can’t do in my country. I have to say that I have a “HOME” here. I live with the best home stay here and I learn lots of things from them. It is an experience that you can’t find anywhere else. At the time that I’m writing this I’m in Year 12.
I’m also on the International Council at school. I knew from the first day that I couldn’t stay here forever but I didn’t expect it to be this soon. I don’t have a chance to run for the council as a Year 13 student but I believe that the next generation of international council will make sure that all the international students will have the great experience that I have had or even better.
I will never forget that I couldn’t have come this far without the school and my homestay. After I leave school, I will go to University of Manchester in England. I will follow my dream which is studying Computer Science. So now I think all I can tell you the reason why I choose to come here. Because it’s worth it.
My name is Lukas Sutter. I’m 15 years old and I have spent the last year in New Zealand. During my time at Lincoln High School I learned a lot about this country, its people and myself. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here, thanks to many friends I made, my brilliant host family and the immeasurable support of the International Department.
I had a lot of fun during my stay at Lincoln High School thanks to all the trips and activities I participated in. I also enjoyed the different way of teaching and school life in general from my home in Germany. It was great learning in a more practical way, with all the teachers being more approachable, friendlier and more relaxed than back home.
During my stay I learned things like kayaking and rock-climbing. I did a First Aid Course and travelled around New Zealand. I saw the beautiful beaches of Nelson, walked through the exciting streets of Queenstown and made many friends from both New Zealand and all over the world.
On my first trip we went camping near a little beach and in the middle of the night we went outside to look at the stars. I knew then it was going to be a great year.
I got quite a lot out lot of my stay in New Zealand and now that I’m about to leave, it is almost like leaving a second home.
Lincoln High School is a very modern and interesting school. I was quite surprised about how nice and friendly the students and teachers are. If you have a question you always get a satisfying answer.
I first came to stay for 6 months, now I am staying for 3 years; that is how much I like studying at Lincoln High School.I have got to know many new people and have become really good friends with a lot of Kiwi students.I am very committed to Drama and I have a lot of fun doing Drama performances.
One of the best aspects of Lincoln High School is all the School and House Events that happen quite regularly. I really like participating in these and have had so much fun participating in the House Film Festival and the Cross County.
My name is Lee Ga On and I am from Korea. I came to Lincoln High School last year. Do you know why my English is improving? One reason is that Lincoln High School gave me a wonderful homestay. Another reason is there are so many kind teachers and Kiwi friends around me. The Last thing is that the international teachers organize lots of trips to go around New Zealand therefore I can learn about the New Zealand culture and this helps my English skills.
I am really impressed that Lincoln High School gave me a lot of chance to experience important things in my life.

There are many activities in our school, such as mufti day for donating money to support the recovery from Christchurch Earthquake and Japan Tsunami, music festivals and film festivals. Furthermore the school canteen supplies a lot of Asian food for Asian students such as sushi and cups of noodles. My favourite hobby at school is playing the guitar. This year I also joined the table tennis team and we went to Palmerston North for the National Tournament. I learnt lots of skills and had some new experiences from this trip.
Lincoln high School has many different hobbies and sports teams for students to join and this is the reason I like the school so much.
