FROM TE KURA (The Correspondence School)

Tēnā koutou

With NCEA and Scholarship exams well underway, we would like to remind you about Te Kura Summer School. It is free and essentially, students can complete top up standards through Te Kura and HVHS will load the results.  

This is the fifth year we have offered summer study, which has grown in popularity every year. More than 1500 students took advantage of Summer School last year to top up their NCEA credits, enabling them to go on to further study, training or employment.

Te Kura work in partnership with schools to ensure we are meeting NZQA regulations.

Because students have a single Record of Achievement in an academic year, credits achieved by a student (by the NZQA deadline – usually mid-February) are reported by the student’s previous school of enrolment, not Te Kura.

This year, the Ministry of Education as included a new gateway for students to dual register with Te Kura for Summer School so that they do not have to be removed from their school of enrolment when they register with us. Students can do this themselves.

As you can see from the attached flyers (in English, te reo Māori and Samoan), courses are delivered online so with access to a computer and the internet, students can learn anywhere and anytime.
