James - From  Vietnam - year  13

I am of Vietnamese origin and I love attending Rotorua Boys’ High School. 

A big part of my life is living at the Tai Mitchell Hostel, where I have lived since 2012. 

I really enjoy Hostel life, and meeting all of the other students. There is a real brotherhood at the Tai Mitchell Hostel, and I have formed many friendships that I am sure will last a lifetime. 

The staff at the Tai Mitchell Hostel are very supportive and they encourage a friendly, family atmosphere. 

My academic studies have progressed very well while I have been at Rotorua Boys’ High School. I have passed NCEA at Level 1 and Level 2 with Excellence and aim to achieve another Excellence Endorsement at Level 3. 

Next year I would like to go to Media Design School.
