Enrichment and Extension


The Gateway Programme is offered at Waitaki Girls’ High School.  Students for this programme apply to be involved.  Students study 5 subjects and undertake a work placement and work-related study.  More information is available in the subject area of this booklet.

Dual Pathways

These courses are at Polytechnic. Students will be out of school for one or two days per week. Students on a two day Dual Pathway course will have a fixed school timetable for their three days at school. Students will have the opportunity to gain at least 20 credits in the Pathway they choose. Students need to be committed to staying at school all year. Students must go to their course every week. There will be contracts between the Polytechnic, School, Student and Parents. To apply students must write a letter of application to Mrs. Searle, before 16 September.

Work Experience

Year 13 students have the opportunity to participate in on job work experience for one term. This is a great opportunity for students to experience being in a working environment.
