I came to Lynfield College because I had heard great things about it. I live near the school, and I know lots of people who went there, and they all said it was great. Me and my family came to the Lynfield College open day, and we saw everything the school had to offer. There was, and is, so many opportunities, new buildings and places that are being updated all the time, heaps of courses and subjects, a range of clubs and groups, and events and trips that weren’t offered at intermediate.
Lynfield College is great at offering new things and opportunities, and with keeping up to date on their buildings. The school is always changing and improving, and I think that’s what is great about Lynfield College. Mia Bradley, Year 9
Lynfield College has been an amazing experience for me. It has been a place for me to grow and learn who I am, all whilst creating amazing memories. My favourite part of Lynfield College is probably how many extracurricular activities there are. I have been able to continue to play football, as well as try new sports such as curling and dragon boating. Other school activities such as cultural day, sports competitions, and quizzes are not only extremely fun, but also make learning much more enjoyable. There are also many different courses which have also allowed me to explore my large range of interests and not feel confined to a certain set of subjects or career path. I have really enjoyed my time at Lynfield College, as I have not only been able to learn, but I have also been able to experience new environments and make incredible friends. Ashley Mar, Year 13
I’m a year 9 student at Lynfield College. There were many reasons that I chose to come here. My family and I went to the open day and went on the tours provided. I remember being overwhelmed by the number of choices and opportunities, for example, all the clubs and groups offered. I had heard many good things about the school that assured me of my choice.
The first couple of days were daunting but soon we slid into a rhythm. It was different changing schools as Lynfield is bigger than my intermediate. So far I’ve been involved in some different aspects of our school such as music lessons and sport. I feel at home here now and enjoy sitting on our field at lunchtime and participating in the many activities this school has to offer. Ella Hill, Year 9
My time at Lynfield has been wonderful thanks to the incredible students, and especially staff. The level of inclusivity provided by them is unmatched, whether it be helping Year 9s start their high school journey, celebrating the cultural diversity of our students’ backgrounds, or simply a smile as you walk past them. In and out of the classroom, the friendliness of teachers and classmates creates a welcoming environment for everyone. Learning in this atmosphere is engaging and interesting, and has been a great experience for five years. Meeting new people and making memories with them is easily one of the highlights of my time here. Andy Davy, Year 13
