Scholarships


A big congratulations to two of our students who have secured scholarships for tertiary study in 2018.

Aroha Tainui, who will be studying for a Bachelor of Social Work, received a $6,000 David Johnstone Scholarship to put towards her studies and Chalet Bidois received a Te Ara ki Angitu Scholarship of $5,000 to study Psychology and Maori and Indigenous studies.

Aroha said it was a privilege to receive the scholarship and it will be a big help.

Chalet said she chose these studies because she wanted to learn about the thought processes of her culture.

“I want to learn about the issues that our people face and need to overcome from a cultural perspective. I want to learn about the unconscious cycle that our people are repeating and the ways to overcome them. Psychology gives me the insight into how the mind, behaviour and thought processes work. Through studying psychology I will get to learn the skills that will help me to achieve my goals, and turn the switch on in peoples lives,” Chalet said.
