Whitireia Visits

Over the last few weeks our students in Year 10 have been visiting Whitireia Polytech in Porirua to learn more about courses after school. The days have been well organised and have shown the students a taste of what is on offer from Year 12 onward. We started at the Whitireia Trades Academy which specializes in construction, plumbing, automotive, and electrical and then followed on to the main campus which offers hospitality, music production, nursing, jewelry making, and much more. Students were given an overview of the features of tertiary education, comparing Universities to other institutions and this was followed up by a tour around the campus where we got to partake in various activities. A big thanks to two ex-Newlands students who were two of our guides for the day. Check out some photos below.
