Ahoy Matey! On Wednesday 8 December Languages International staff had their end-of-year Christmas party aboard ye old ship Nick. We enjoyed a great night of swash-buckling fun dressed as pirates. Arnie Poutai won the prize for best dressed teacher, taking a uniquely New Zealand prize, Zorbing!

With dinner, Christmas presents and spot prizes, we danced the night away sailing around Auckland Harbour. It was great fun for all and we thank the two organisers, our Student Services Coordinators Dairne and Ebba, pictured on the left.
