On Tuesday we went to Bethell’s Beach after school. Eleven Languages International students from Russia, Taiwan, Switzerland, Korea and Japan came out to see this beautiful beach. The weather was ideal, and the students saw New Zealands wild West Coast at its most dramatic and beautiful. Bethell’s is one of our least developed beaches, which means that you get a real sense of how the country was before people arrived. We saw crabs, sea birds, wild waves, black sand dunes and lots of romantic and fierce landscapes. It was a great, fun trip that we’ll never forget.
