Well, i live in Auckland, so itll be interesting seeing what special details you put into it. Where is the school going to be? Auckland is the biggest city, but a south island one would be a better choice. not as crowded. also, having a sept-june school year in NZ is just weird, so i wouldnt recommend it.

Oh, all the Kiwis are coming out of the woodwork to comment! Excellent. Yes, I'm setting them up on the South Island. Sort of in middle like where Queenstown is. Right now I'm working out a magical history of NZ - with the giants and then the magical Maoris and then the Europeans coming on the scene. I don't know how much of that will be in the story - but it's nice to know for my own info.
This is just a one year course - so it's not really "school." H/G will be in NZ from Sept. to Sept. It just fit with my timeline best. Be warned that this is magical NZ (based on the real one) so I will be making up names, etc . . But I hope to capture the spirit of your wonderful country. Thanks for reading!
