Students from Sendai Seiryo Secondary School Japan were welcomed with a traditional Powhiri on 28 November.  The group enjoyed Maori activities which included Tititorea and Mau Rakau.

I enjoyed this school life for 2 weeks, and my buddy friends.
I really liked Kelston Girls’ College, the students were kind and interesting!
The Teachers were kind.
I have special memories from the time I spent here.
Even though I can’t speak or understand English very well, I enjoyed myself.
The students were very kind to us.
I want to come back to Kelston Girls’ College some day.

Once again, we say farewell to Shinagawa Junior High School.  The girls have have had an enjoyable and enlightening time at our college.  Even though it was a short tour (2 weeks), the girls have had lots of experiences with their homestay families and their buddies.  They have shared lots of comments and we wish them a safe journey home back to Japan.
