Teacher: Our students live here. They are not just educated here. They develop relationships with one another and we’re talking about children from twenty, thirty different nationalities. And they will then go off into university, or into the world of work and business, and they have a real connection to the people they were at school with, the people who they grew up with.
Maria: My name is Maria, and I’m doing Year 8. I’m from Spain. It’s really nice living with your friends because one day if you are homesick they come and they say, ‘Oh, are you OK? Are you OK?’ They are really nice.
Willy: Hi. My name is Willy. I come from Mexico. In the first week I think I probably was homesick. But later on with my friends, and with the studies and many at the school, I started getting distracted and I started to forget about my home and my family.
Teacher: Once a friend, always a friend, and we find that that is the case with our students.
