Georgia, Year 11

I really wanted to come here after hearing stories from one of our babysitters who was in Year 13. But coming from a small year group in a laid back country school to the full on environment of Nga Tawa was actually quite overwhelming!

At first I was incredibly shy, so the best thing for me was being put in a room in my boarding house with a good group of girls who really drew me out of myself.

To make the most of Nga Tawa, I knew I needed to put myself out of my comfort zone. I play a lot of sport, I’ve discovered triathlon, and in Year 9 I took up debating, which was terrifying. As a shy person, I never pictured myself getting up and talking in front of so many people. But now I talk quite a lot!

One of the things I love about Nga Tawa is that you get so close to people in your house and make the kind of friendships you might not make as a daygirl in high school. I guess you could say there’s no hiding anything from your friends here! I feel if I ever have any problems, they will be there for me.

Nga Tawa has taught me not to be afraid of trying anything, so my next goal is to become a Scholar. That means being in the top six in my year group.
