Afternoon tea for the 21 students who won school scholarships for 2011

CE Don Campbell and the 2011 Schools' Scholarship recipients.

In 2008 Whitireia started a scholarship programme to offer the first year’s fees to a small number of students from local schools. This is part of the “schools’ liaison and transition to tertiary study” commitment of the polytechnic. These awards have had a significant impact with a total of over 60 recipients since 2008.

 The first degree graduates, from the 2008 recipients of these awards are now coming through into the workforce. They were presented with their degrees at a large Whitireia ceremony at te Rauparaha Arena last week.

On Wednesday (30 March) the 2011 recipients gathered as a group for a welcome ‘cuppa.’ Chief Executive, Don Campbell spoke of the pride the schools have in their students’ success and the commitment Whitireia makes to their future.

Here are some photos from the gathering, which faculty and services staff attended.
