With the release of NCEA exam results this week, students missing the few credits they need to complete their secondary school qualifications are turning to Te Kura Summer School. It’s the fifth year the country’s largest school has offered summer study, with 1500 students taking the opportunity last year to top up their NCEA credits to ensure they achieve what they needed for further study, training or to secure a job. Numbers have leapt every year as increasing numbers of students find out more about what Te Kura Summer School can offer. More than 30 subjects are available, with all learning done online. That means student can study anywhere and at any time, just so long as they have access to a computer and connectivity.
