Foreign students from across the world have been coming and going at Wairarapa College this term.

A group of international students farewelled Wairarapa College as their stay came to an end and new students have been arriving to take their place, international student dean Jane Ogilvie said.

Finnish student Janna Alasuvanto, and German pair Alena Horvath and Dane Maja Helles returned home "after an exciting year" at the Masterton school.

"Highlights of their stay have been snow caving, tramping, participating in kapa haka and watching the Golden Shears," Ms Ogilvie said.


"Becoming a part of Kiwi culture is what has stood out the most," she said.

Janna was presented with flowers at the final college choir performance from Cantate, of which she was a part.

Still at the college are students from China, Austria, France and Japan.

And Ms Ogilvie said that soon students from Paraguay, Japan and Austria would join the "vibrant multi-cultural group".
