New Caledonian students visit Riccarton!

Courtney Watson —

A group of French students have arrived in New Zealand and will be attending Riccarton High School for just under a week.

On Tuesday the 4th of September 2018, 24 students, ranging from the ages 13-15 years old, from Paitea College in New Caledonia, arrived in New Zealand. 

The group will spend just under a week attending Riccarton High School, learning about the culture and attitude that will be presented throughout our students. 

The students from New Caledonia will get to spend some time in Auckland before going home on the following Wednesday, the 12th of September 2018. 

Riccarton High School has already hosted a visit for Paitea College before, as this is the second year in a row that they have selected us as their destination... but obviously they would come back! 

We hope that the students from New Caledonia really enjoy their time in NZ and especially their time at Riccarton High School.
