EMMA, Year 12

Like many girls presented with the prospect of boarding school, I wasn’t convinced that leaving the comforts of home in Christchurch to spend five years at boarding school was such a good idea. 

That all changed when I came across the Nga Tawa school horse truck down south at Springston Trophy. I met a few of the girls and they looked like they were having so much fun.  

Right then and there I asked Mum if I could go.

I'm now Year 12 and fully immersed in life at Nga Tawa. I do Performing Arts, I'm a Scholar and a keen sportswoman. But it’s the time I get to spend down at the yards with my horse, Puzzle, that I love most about Nga Tawa. It’s been absolutely awesome since Puzzle has been here.

I'm hoping to earn Excellence Endorsed in NCEA and have my sights set on becoming a Prefect next year.

It’s cool to be a leader here and I look up to the older girls.

A few of my friends from Pony Club in Christchurch have now come to Nga Tawa.

I just said to them, if you’re thinking about coming to Nga Tawa I recommend you do because it’s the best time you’ll ever have.
