Meet Student Ambassador: Bowyasri

I am a yr 12 student at Whangārei Girls High School. I was born in India. My parents and I came here in 2017 I have been in NZ for 6 years now.


What made you choose Northland?

I chose Northland because I love the climate, it’s not too cold in winter compared to the south island. There are a lot of beautiful beaches to explore in Northland, I can go swimming and fishing with my family.

What do you love most about studying at school in New Zealand?

Studying in Northland so far has been very fun. My teachers are really nice to me. They help me understand it clearly, if I have any issues with the topic. I like the special activities that we do in our school. I have many friends from different countries, they are all really nice and friendly to me.

What are your favourite experiences in Northland?

Whangarei has many beautiful attractions to visit, one of my favourite attractions so far is the new burning issues gallery in the town basin. I loved the paintings and the NZ art gifts that we can get for special occasions.

What are your interests, sports  and hobbies?

I am interested in arts, sciences, listening to music, playing badminton after school and reading books.

What is your favourite local place to hang out with friends?

I like to hang out in the town basin,  going shopping with my friends in town and playing badminton in Northland badminton club.
