Overall. It's a great school. I could imagine it'd be great to work there as a teacher. Everyone is friendly. The environment is great. Everyone contributes & the teachers are very closely knit, to ensure the best for the students.

My most enjoyalble experience was working with all of the students at Linwood College especailly the Pasifika students for their Polynesian performances, which included a mixture of 36 year9 to 13 students who were dedicated to performing against other schools.

For me it was a real challenge of organising the students, incorperating and maintaining the disclipine, teaching time management, communicating as well as liasioning with primary/ staff members, parents and people in the
