Craig Marshall Builder joined Otago Boys' High School three years ago as a host Gateway employer.
Pictured is William Haley. In addition to small house repairs William has been fortunate to be also working on a new house build this year which is nearing completion.
If you would like to support Otago Boys' High School in hosting a student across a trade or other industry in 2021 please email: [email protected]
Students who are interested in being part of the Gateway class for 2021 should come with their parent/caregiver to the Subject Selection evening next Wednesday at Otago Boys' High School.
In addition to selecting Gateway as a subject option, students must apply to be considered. Application forms will be available next Wednesday evening and thereafter from the school office.
Gateway is sponsored by The Tertiary Education Commission who meet the costs of health and safety equipment and courses. They also finance the purchase of Industry Unit Standards to match a students placement. The expectation is that a student completes 20 NCEA credits attached to his placement.
