Photo: SARAH DUNN Six Brazilian high-school students are experiencing their first taste of the world outside Brazil in the Nelson region. Aged 16 to 17, the three boys and three girls are studying at Garin College under an exchange programme called Win the World. The programme is funded by the Brazilian state of Pernambuco, in the northeast of Brazil. Garin International Students adminis- trator Denise Gerrish said that unlike many foreign exchange students, the Brazilians were not from wealthy famil- ies. The opportunity to study in New Zealand as part of this programme is a huge honour and privilege for them,'' she said. Students studying abroad under Win the World are selected for the programme based on their academic performance in maths, Portuguese and English. At Garin they are required to take clas- ses in physical education, English, maths, a science and a humanities sub- ject. The six students are not registered under NCEA but are expected to partici- pate in all class activities and all live with homestay families. I always wanted to go places in the world and be fluent in English,'' Gabrielle Ramos de Nascimento said. To be in New Zealand is a dream realised.'' She said her host family was perfect'', describing New Zealand as a beautiful place that they all liked. In particular, Gabrielle was interested to see how clear and flat the roads around Nelson are, and she appreciated the relaxed Kiwi style of schooling. Despite a hot summer, the Brazilians said New Zealand was a little chilly. Daniel Filipe de Assis wears a thermal skivvy under his school uniform. The beaches are beautiful but the water is really cold,'' he said.
