Verslag over Tahiti; Soraya Mastenbroek


The 21st of November 2015 was the day we left for Tahiti. I was very excited because it was going to be my my first time on a plane ever. It was also very far from home. The flight turned out to be much nicer than I thought.
We received a very warm welcome and the people danced for us. After the festivities we wet home with our fosterparents.
I stayed at Aurora’s home who lived together with her mother and little brother. Aurora and I went tot he beach and then with her mother and brother to the market.
In the beginning of my stay I was really homesick but then I got used to the new situation and the feeling got less.
We did a lot of things and every day was filled with fun activities. One day we took a walk up an inactive volcano. The view over the whole island was beautiful. It was the experience of a life time. We also went to the island Moorea. We went by boat and we were accompanied by dolphins. Very nice to see that with your own eyes. When we arrived on the island we went snorkeling. We saw manta rays, sharks and lots more beautiful and colourful fish. At first I was afraid to go into the water because of the rays and the sharks. They swim right past you, imagine that. My teacher said I just had to try it, because it was something that I would never do again. So I went into the water with him. Within minutes a ray swam past. I stroked it and it felt just like a sponge. It was awesome. The water was very clear, you could see lots of fish. I didn’t want to leave the island, but at the end of the afternoon we all had to go back to Tahiti.

Tahiti is a very beautiful island too, in fact I didn’t want to go back to Holland at all.
There were other children from other countries too. They were from Sweden and Spanish Basque-country. We all took games with us from our own countries and we played them together. We brought Memory and the Swedish children brought a game with pictures and Swedish words that you had to link to eachother. There was a lot of running involved too. We had a lot of fun.
The school we went to had organized a Tahitian day. We saw al sorts of activities and dances and heard their music. I enjoyed it very much and I learned a lot about the Tahitian culture.

They were many games, I like very much the Spanish game because we moved, we had to do a circle with four groups composed of six students of every countries, all students had a number, then the Spanish teacher situated in the middle design the number and choose a word, the pupil who was designed, ran around the circle then we had to pass under the students, finally this people search the same word in the different lingual.

TAINANUARII Faatauira

Thursday afternoon, we did a hike in the mountain called Aneane at Arue. We walked during 4 hours, I know that it’s too long but wait the results. Sometimes, it was funny when people screamed when they failed. It was dangerous because the pathway was slippery and small. It was tiring, there is a lot of climbs. But when we arrived at the top, the view was incredible, beautiful and there was a strong wind. Even us, Tahitian people were surprised of the beauty of our island. Even if I was so tired, I had no regrets. Maybe you too Swedish, Basque, Dutch friends. I hope that you liked the activities that we did. Thank you for these moments . It was so nice to spend time with you and talk with you J

Friday morning:

On friday morning, we went into our classes with our partners. They introduced their country to all the students of our class, it was very interested because even the students who don't participate to the Erasmus project learnt a lot about Spain, Sweeden and Holland. They showed us films and pictures. It was very nice because we spoke Spanish and English all together. I think that they really liked being into classes, because they saw another part of us in classes, and they saw what we were doing. We worked together and it was really great !

Tainanuarii Faatauira Friday night: On Friday night we went at Pirae town hall. The mayor which is also the president of French Polynesia, Mr Edward FRITCH, wasn’t here; he was in Paris for the COP21. We did a little visit of the town hall with the mayor assistant. After that we went in the meeting room and the mayor assistant welcomed us. Our headmaster, Mrs Ganaye made a speech about the ERASMUS+ program and its goals. Then our teacher Mrs Lusseau did her speech to thank everyone for all the work we have done all together and for the amazing week that we had, she also gave us our Erasmus+ certificate of participation. The students also created a song in all the languages in 3 hours and sang it after all the speech. Then we had a nice cocktails and just before leaving Oscar a swedish studen did a very nice speech.

Basque Students in TAHITI



Tahiti

Thanks to the Erasmus+ project, this year I have had the opportunity of traveling to Tahiti with three other students like me.We stayed there for a week with a host family, so we had the chance of living a normal Tahitian lifestyle.

external image ERASMUS_17.jpgThe journey started in the airport of Bilbo; from there we had to take a plane to Paris, then another one to Los Angeles and a final one to Papeete (Tahiti).We travelled for almost one day and a half, but it was very funny as one of us had never ever flown before, so she was really nervous!!



When we reached to Tahiti they made us a welcome with their typical dances, and they also put us some flower crowns and necklaces.After meeting all the students from the project I went to my host’s home. There she introduced me to her family and after having lunch they took me to a local market where she explained me about their culture. She also showed me how there are a lot of islands and how each of them has different traditions; dances, clothes,...

external image ERASMUS_28.jpgThe second day we went to school, there I finished meeting all the Erasmus+ students and I also had to present my country with the students that came with me from the Basque Country. The TV also came that day to record the school, students and teachers.

external image ERASMUS_146.jpgDuring the week, the school took us to a lot of beautiful places; we went to Moorea (an island close to Tahiti) where we had the chance of swimming with sharks and manta rays; we also went to a spectacular inner garden with lots of flowers and a pond full of fishes where we played a game similar to memory… ; and they also took us to a park where we played football for almost all the afternoon…My favorite day was the Polynesian day; we did not go anywhere but I had a lot of fun.That day the school had prepared some activities for the students of all the school. In the morning we learned how to do flower crowns, how to prepare raw fish, how to play the ukulele and the drums... And in the afternoon we played to different games from each country.

It was a fantastic experience and I would absolutely repeat it again!! By Naroa López De Abetxuko

"For me this trip to Tahiti has been one of the best experiences in my life. It gave me the opportunity to learn a lot of different things like other cultures and languages, different lifestyles,... and it also gave me the chance to practice English.


Tahiti is so far from my own country...and it is very different in many things, for example the food: Before going there I had never eaten raw fish, I thought I wasn't going to like it, but now, I know it is DELICIOUS. People from Tahiti are different too, they are more open than here , I made a lot of friends. The island is very different too, the plants, the mountains, the colour of the sea... the beaches. I really enjoyed it !" By Martzeli Perurena


"Going to Tahiti was an amazing experience. I have to say that what I expected was ... going to the beach every day and having good weather. Obviously, Tahiti was not exactly like that.

external image ERASMUS_166.jpg

It was a small island with very nice people and very hot. I really had a good time there, I met a lot of new people and I also learnt about different cultures.

I enjoyed a lot the activities we did there, all the activities!. Every day we had something prepared to do . But the activities I liked the most were the trip to Moorea (where we swam with sharks, also the trip by boat was very funny), and the Polynesian Day at the school (There were a lot of activities to do, I enjoyed it a lot!) "By Nagore Fresno.

"The trip to Tahiti has been an unforgettable experience. I have really enjoyed the stay there since the people were lovely and very pleasant. I have made a lot of good friends and I am missing them a lot.


I was very happy with my host family, they gave me a good accommodation and they were very kind to me. They made this week one of the best weeks in my life.


On the other hand I have learnt many things, for example that the culture and habits are very different from ours.

external image ERASMUS_228.jpgWe did a lot of excursions, the last one was very nice because they took us on a day tour around the island, we visited many beaches, caves, waterfalls,... the bad thing was that it rained all day, but it was funny.

Apart from the good friends that we made, my favourite thing of being in Tahiti was the trip to Moorea. I love the island because it resembles me the idea of The Paradise. I enjoyed a lot because we visited a lagoonarium and we swam with sharks and rays and other fish, we also fed them. It was an incredible experience." By Nerea Martín
