Got a Trade! School of the Year Award

“I’m over the moon,” says John Paitai. The principal of Bay of Islands College in Kawakawa returned from Wellington last week with the inaugural ‘Got a Trade! School of the Year Award in hand.

The accolade was one of four distributed at the 2017 Got A Trade? Got It Made! Industry Training Awards, held at Parliament last week. The awards were the pinnacle of the ‘Got A Trade? Got It Made! Week’, aimed at promoting the range of job opportunities that offer the chance to ‘earn and learn’ and launch successful careers.

Thanks to some excellent initiatives, Bay of Islands College students are exposed to these sorts of opportunities while still at school.

With a roll of just 343 students, the Northland high school emerged from a shortlist of 23 secondary schools as the best in the country at supporting its students to transition successfully from school to employment.  Click here to read the full article
