A group of aspiring students from the Porirua colleges travelled into the city to attend the Victoria University Open day.
All of the faculty’s were on show and it was a great opportunity to to see the different courses on offer and to get a taste of University life in the Capital.
The group attended some sample lectures to hear more about different subjects from the lecturers themselves. They found it quite interesting and were surprised by how different it was to their classrooms and the teaching at their schools.
As well as experiencing sitting through a lecture, there was a lot of entertainment throughout the day. The girls were pretty successful winning lollies by shooting three-pointers after three-pointers in basketball.
We all came home with smiles on on our faces and painted Maori tattoos thanks to Te Kawa a Māui – School of Māori Studies.
