NEW INTERNATIONAL LEADERS
We welcome two new international leaders and returning International Leader Jaime Howell back for 2021.
Jaime Howell: My name is Jaime Howell and I am returning to this role of an international leader in 2021. One of my hobbies is the harp, so this year I want to push myself and improve enough that I can play more confidently in performances. For our international students, I’m really looking forward to spending more time with them and learning what they are or aren’t enjoying about school in New Zealand.
Alvin Chen: My name is Alvin Chen and it's a privilege for me to be the new International Leader for St Andrew’s College in 2021. I'm looking forward to working alongside all team members and spending time with all international students whom I will get to know more about this year. I came to New Zealand in August 2014 and have studied at St Andrew’s since then. I like watching anime which has encouraged me to take Japanese as a subject at school. My goal this year is to learn how to play the piano because I would love to learn one instrument, not to performance but just to entertain.
Michael McCaskey: My name is Michael McCaskey. I am 17 and in Year 12 at St Andrew’s College. This is my first year as one of the International Leaders for 2021, I am looking forward to working with everyone and for what this year has in store. I play hockey for the school and do athletics, and my hobbies are airsoft, playing the guitar and learning new things. I love learning about new cultures and what life is like around the globe, which gives me a new understanding on how the world works and all the incredible cultures that fill it. Our family has been hosting home-stays for five years, and it has been an amazing experience learning about and living with students from different parts of the world. I am excited for what lays ahead this year regarding being an International Leader, and hope that 2021 is a year that international students at St Andrew’s College will enjoy and cherish.
