International students welcomed to New Zealand

Students from around the world have been arriving to study in New Zealand schools over the last few weeks. They have been shown some top rate Kiwi hospitality, with their schools running an impressive range of welcome events to help them settle in, and to give them a taste of what it means to be a Kiwi!
