Delivered over a full school day and designed at two levels for Yr 5/6 & Yr 7/8.
We meet with the parents/whanau for 75 mins (during an afternoon/evening), some time prior to meeting with the children, to discuss with them the course outline, answer questions etc.
Please note some schools choose not hold a parents/whanau evening.
We then provide a fun educational session for the students (meeting boys and girls together and separately throughout the day dependent on subject matter).
