What should I do once I've gained my Summer School results?

Email ncea.payment@tekura.school.nz confirming you have finished gaining all your Summer School results. Include your name, Te Kura ID, each standard number and result. We will need to verify these against the results in our student database.

Summer School is over a short time period, and it’s all online. It’s amazing what you can get done at your own pace and at your own place when you set your mind to it.

You will have subject teachers to answer questions and assess your work and they are really committed to helping you achieve your goals but, unlike our regular school year, you don’t have a learning advisor to oversee your learning.

So, to achieve at summer school you need to …

  • Be focussed, motivated and responsible for your own learning.
  • Communicate with your teachers. We want you to succeed, so if you have any questions or issues stay in touch.
  • Make sure you are clear about what you need to achieve and that you are doing the right courses.
  • Do the study. You can’t resubmit a piece of work that didn’t pass at your last school. You can only use planning that you did towards an uncompleted piece of work – your work needs to be original and your own.
  • Be realistic about what you can achieve. A general rule of thumb is each credit takes 10 hours of work.
  • Know the dates you need to get assessment in. Also factor in time to make any changes from feedback from your teachers.
  • If you have someone who can support you make the most of that and get them involved.
