Monday, May 6 - Otago Tertiary Open Day
Every year the school takes Year 13 students to Dunedin for an open day, so they may explore their options for next year. This is a great day, with Otago University, Otago Polytechnic and International Travel College all opening their doors for students to investigate their future career choices. Students will be given a booklet this week to help them choose which programs they would like to look at and help plan their day. As parents you may be interested in looking at this booklet and talking about their choices. Students may bring their own lunch, purchase their lunch or there is a free BBQ between 12pm and 2pm on the union lawn. Students are allowed to wear mufti for the day but are advised to check the forecast and take a coat or umbrella for Dunedin's unexpected weather! The bus will leave at 6.45am sharp. Students should arrive before this for roll call.
