Gateway Week

Gateway Week

From Kaka Point, Kaitangata, Balclutha and locally, thirteen of our Senior students have put their employment skills and knowledge to the test for Gateway Week.

With a few hiccups of COVID-19 Level changes saw a complication of some placements but thankfully our local community rallied around!! Students have had excellent feedback from initiative to conduct and the ability to pick up tasks quickly. 

A huge thank you to all the businesses involved, these include:

  • Kai Kids Preschool
  • Wild Thingz Nadine Perrin
  • Mitchell Farms
  • Glenn Wilkinson Building
  • The Catlins Area School
  • Big River Educare
  • Blondeez
  • Hairworkz
  • Cafe 55 on Clyde
  • Holmdene
  • Clutha Views
  • Owaka Library
  • Rose bank Kindergarten 
  • Best Start Balclutha

Thanks must also go to the students for representing themselves & their school so proudly and the students' parents and transporters who all had an important part to play in a successful Gateway week!
