It is at these kaupapa where we will disseminate and explore the various opportunities that are available to our students. To create better understanding the underlying principles for this event are based on whakaaro kotahi (collective enlightenment), manaaki (the act of being hospitable), mahi torowhānui (being inclusive/being holistic). This will be a great opportunity to learn more about, study options, student support, scholarships and anything you wish to know more about. Please register below for catering purposes.
