Elaine, Hong Kong

Friday 4 August, 10am

“In Hong Kong, it’s like teachers are programming robots. At Nga Tawa, they take more care. They knew me as a person and not just a number.”

Elaine found Nga Tawa’s peaceful, rural environment a stark contrast to her upbringing in Hong Kong. She also went from having 40 students in her class to small classes with lots of one on one time with teachers. She loved Nga Tawa’s nurturing learning environment where teachers listened and took the time to help her find a word or to point her in the right direction. While at Nga Tawa she rode a horse for the first time, played tennis and badminton, and fell in love with rugby. She went on to study Food Science and Nutrition in Auckland.
