Crofton House School

Our first exchange with Crofton House, Vancouver, was in 2016.  Crofton House was established in 1898 and is a preparatory day school for girls from junior kindergarten to Grade 12.

Our seven weeks at Crofton House School were incredible and by the first couple of days, we had settled in completely.  We instantly fell in love with Vancouver, its scenery and our host families, who were incredibly welcoming to us.  This exchange has allowed us to grow more independently and we have made many lifelong friends that we will never forget.  Crofton House School was so welcoming and every student and staff member made us feel right at home.  We definitely recommend this exchange to students as it is truly a once in a lifetime experience.  Arriving back in New Zealand very early Sunday morning,  we were amazed at how hot our weather is already.  The warmest weather we had during our seven weeks in Vancouver was 15 degrees,  the lowest being around minus 3 and snowing.  Vancouver and it's people will always hold a place in our hearts and we look forward to seeing future Dio girls take on this awesome adventure.
