Who can enrol?
Students on Te Kura’s roll come from a range of different backgrounds. They include students who:
- are from families who are geographically remote or itinerant, or living overseas
- have been bullied, alienated or excluded/expelled from their face-to-face school
- have been referred to Te Kura by the Ministry of Education due to psychological or psycho-social needs
- have a long-term illness or medical condition
- have learning support needs
- are pregnant or are young parents
- have been referred by the Ministry for Children, Oranga Tamariki or the Department of Corrections
- are elite athletes, dancers, musicians, sportspeople or performers whose extra-curricular commitments make a regular school routine impossible
- would like a second chance at completing their high school qualifications
- are unable to attend an early childhood education centre locally because of distance and isolation or because demand exceeds the places available in their area.
Students who are already enrolled with a school may also register with us if they would like to study courses that their own school doesn’t offer. These students are known as ‘dual students’.
