My Year in NZ
My year at Kaiapoi in New Zealand
had more good points than fingers on my hand:
I found heaps of friends
And we hung out on the weekends.
I improved my English skills
And I didn’t even need to go over big study-hills.
I even got better marks than many kiwis
Sometimes I just laugh and give them silent hehes.
I climbed some small and big hills
Outdoor ed. taught me great skills.
We learnt how to survive in the wild
Even though New Zealand is pretty mild.
Drama as a subject was really cool
It really made me enjoy school.
We always wanted to play games,
It was the first class where I knew all names.
Mathematics and Science weren’t hard
In science not sleeping was the hardest part
Sometimes I got best in class
And I never just got a pass.
Painting was part of art
But photography was also a big part
Handball is my favorite sport
And it became the theme of my board
I also loved Youth Group
Eastercamp was great woop woop
One Sunday afternoon we were sitting
And we all learned knitting
I had three different homes over here
When I changed there was more than one tear
I was happy in every place
In any given time and space
I’ve done heaps of things after school
And all of them were really cool.
For example I played volleyball,
Even though I am not very tall.
The nature of New Zealand is great
I can’t think of anything I hate
I loved doing outdoor activities
And I drank lots of L&P’s.
I got to know many of you
And I hope you enjoyed meeting me too.
Most of You were a great help in the beginning
And our friendship was better than winning.
I would like to stay in touch with you
And I hope you want that too.
You could write a letter
Or emails are even better.
One day I would like to come again
If you come to Germany, tell me when!
Thank you for the great year
I really enjoyed it here.
