int_clara_gunter“I’ve had the time of my life at Waiuku College! The people in Waiuku are absolutely lovely and it’s so easy to make friends. I’m still in touch with a lot of people I met on my exchange and especially my host family who are like a second family to me now. There’s so much to do: kayaking to the waterfall, going for a swim at Kariotahi Beach.”Clara Gunter, Germany.
