International Student Testimonials
You get individual attention at Morrinsville College. I have been taken to different tertiary institutions to explore courses so I can make an informed choice about which course to follow. I am also enjoying working towards Duke Of Edinburgh Award and being part of sports teams.
I appreciate the support I was given and the help fr the next stages of my life when I returned to my home country.
There is always someone to help you, and that has built up my confidence.
My experience studying at Morrinsville College helped me be successful with my university application in Japan. It was a pleasure to meet you all and I hope we can meet in the future.
I was given the chance to follow new passions like horseriding. Our trips explored culture and history of our local community. I was able to pass all three NCEA levels in one year which meant I was able to go the university of my choice.
Have been here for three years and have loved every minute of it. There are amazing teachers who have been so helpful. I feel confident I can make the right choice about my future.
