Yuji Hattori (OC 2019) | Japanese International Student

Yuji Hattori (OC 2019) initially joined St Andrew's College in 2015, for a two-week study trip. Yuji enjoyed what St Andrew's College had to offer and New Zealand's culture, so he decided to extend his stay.

Yuji relished the challenge of learning the New Zealand curriculum and immersed himself in the boarding house and International Club, which has given him confidence and seen his English go from strength to strength. Yuji enjoys playing hockey, badminton, basketball, magic card tricks and the relaxed Christchurch day-to-day life.
