Tertiary providers present at school and our students can choose to visit tertiary campuses so that they are able to make informed decisions about their future pathways. We have strong links with our community and our students can participate in practical courses at Whitireia Polytechnic to gain skills and qualifications which prepare them for study and employment when they leave school. Due to our connections with local businesses, students have the opportunity to complete work experience placements to provide them with valuable experience in the industry of their choice.
