It has been a privilege hosting international students, both short and long stay through Tauranga Boys’ College. The TBC International staff are extremely supportive of us hosts and students, and our experiences have been very positive.
We love learning about other cultures, traditional foods and languages. We are also proud to welcome students who are looking to embrace the kiwi culture and become a part of our active whanau. Dealing with the challenges and highpoints becomes an enriching experience of personal growth for each member of our whānau and the students. When students first arrive, naturally they are shy and awkward but overtime it is pleasing to watch them come out of their shell, become more confident and appreciate all that beautiful Tauranga Moana has to offer.
