TERTIARY TRANSITION SKILLS

The library is hosting classes in tertiary transition skills for Year 13 students planning to go on to tertiary study. Universities are telling us that students are failing in their first semester because they don’t know how to reference their work, how to take notes or how to use databases, among other things.
The classes will be on Wednesdays from 3.30 – 4.30 for 4 weeks and also on Tuesdays from 9 – 10 a.m. for those who can’t come after school on Wednesdays. The same material will be covered in the Tuesday and Wednesday classes.

HOMESTAY FAMILIES NEEDED

We have a large group of international students at Wellington High.  The majority of these students are living in a homestay situation where they are being hosted by a family in Wellington.
What is being a homestay all about?
  • A homestay fee of $271.00 is paid weekly
  • Provide an inclusive and supportive home, taking a student in as one of the family.
  • A student would require a room of their own and 3 meals a day.
