Over the last few weeks we have been learning about our families histories. By interviewing our parents we have been able to discover where we come from and in many cases why our families chose NZ to start their new lives. Here is just a few things we have learnt about ourselves and each other...
"If Samarah's parents hadn't immigrated she would still be living in Fiji, but they came here because of the coup and to have a better life" Amelia
"Hemish's parents came to NZ to get away from the crime, pollution and corruption in India" Maarya
"Sebastian was a baby model whose picture was printed in a magazine" Ilsa
"The whole island of Niue has wifi" Brianna
parents immigrated to NZ for better education, lifestyle, culture and safety. This means we have been able to live better lives and in the future we will benefit from higher education and opportunities we wouldn't have had before." Samarah, Chantelle, Hemish, Maarya, Viraj, Amelia, Dev.
