I have been at Isfeld for two years and am graduating this summer. I love sports, and I was happy to be part of the school’s basketball team. With the team I got to travel a lot, which I also really enjoyed. I loved my Active Lifestyles class, where we did fieldtrips every week. I made lots of new friends from many countries while doing lots of exciting activities. For example, highropes and camp fire, at orientation camp on Hornby Island!
I think the biggest difference between Finland and Comox Valley is that here people are a lot friendlier and politer than back home. My favourite activity with the Comox Valley International Student Program was the whale watching trip. I enjoyed seeing the wildlife and getting to know the other international students. Active Lifestyles for girls, where we did many exciting activities, like skating, cross-fit training and dragon boating, was one of my favourite classes. I will go home with many unforgettable memories and lots of new friends.
My favourite subject is definitely the hockey academy. I always wanted to play hockey and I finally got the chance in the Comox Valley. I even got school credit for it!
I really like the fact that you can choose your subjects and direct your own learning. I have made many really good friends here; especially Canadians. They have taught me so much about Canada. The Comox Valley has the most peaceful climate and weather that I have every lived in.
