Who are our Exchange Students?

My Name is Martin Pinholt.

I am a Danish exchange student here at Tikipunga high school I am going to be in New Zealand for a year. I chose to go to New Zealand because it is a beautiful country and I have heard a lot of good things about it. I also chose New Zealand because it spoke English and as everyone in Denmark learns English and use it a lot in the daily life at home. I was also hoping to make new friends and see new places.


Hi, my name is Anton and I’m from Finland. I wanted to come to New Zealand because I wanted to learn more English, see new culture, make new friends and experience new opportunities. I am as an exchange student for one year and I’m living the best time of my life. Everyone are nice here and help if I need. This will be my first Christmas without snow and lying on the beach when it normally would be -25 degrees and lots of snow.
