    Wentworth College is a private school in Auckland, New Zealand. As Principal and part owner of the school it gives me great pleasure to talk about New Zealand and then the excellent educational opportunities that exist in New Zealand for students from Europe to study. I will conclude my talk with images from my power point of my school, Wentworth College.New Zealand is a stunningly beautiful country with a small population of 4.5 million people. It has a very good standard of living and internationally is recognized as a very safe and politically stable place to live and visit.

    Largely pollution free, children in New Zealand grow up spending a great amount of time in the outdoors, playing sport, tramping, camping and swimming at the beautiful beaches. New Zealand children are encouraged to push their personal boundaries and face challenges with confidence.

    The climate in the North Island is temperate with mild winters and warm summers. In the South Island, which is predominantly mountainous has hot summers and cold winters with plenty of snow for excellent skiing.New Zealand has an exporting prominence in dairy products, meat and wool from sheep as well as timber products. Tourism and adventure tourism is a rapidly growing industry that will play a major part in our country for the future. The production of outstanding wines especially Rieslings, sauvignon blanc and pinot noir has placed New Zealand internationally as one of the world’s finest wine growing regions for these varieties.

    Wentworth College is a secondary school and is one of the top academic private schools in New Zealand offering an international qualification that had global significance. Wentworth College students study the International Cambridge Qualification system that is taught in 160 countries in the world. Over 90 % of Wentworth students study at universities once they complete their secondary education.

    A feature of this school is its location, next to the most prestigious yacht marina in New Zealand, bordered by the outstanding international golf course „Gulf Harbour Country Club“ and only 5 minutes from a wonderful wild life regional park. Combined these with the 7 beautiful, crystal clear beaches that are within 10 minutes of the school Wentworth College is indeed fortunate to be in such an idyllic environment for a school and to educate students from New Zealand and overseas.

    Wentworth College has 250 students with a feature of teachers getting to know their students really well. There is a teacher pupil ratio of 1:11 students the very best of teaching and care. International students especially from Europe are attending the school for periods of 3 months, 1 year and some for up to 3 years. The ability to extend their English knowledge, experience the wonderful outdoor educational culture, follow a high quality education program within a very safe and caring environment is indeed a wonderful opportunity for students from overseas.
