Gateway 2020

Andrea Williamson —

Well, 2020 has been an interesting year for Gateway.

I am glad to report that our Gateway students showed their flexibility, patience and adaptability to complete a work placement, along with the required credits. The relationships with employers in our local community is a very important part of the Gateway programme here at Kaiapoi High School. Students sampled different careers and we are extremely grateful to the following employers this year for supporting our students:

Xanadu Hair Studio, Marshall and Pringle Vet Clinic, Ashley Boarding Cattery, Canterbury Aero Club, Kaiapoi North Primary School, Kaiapoi New World, Countdown Kaiapoi, Countdown Hornby, Countdown Church Corner, Countdown Colombo St, Techsure Engineering, Karanga Mai Early Childhood Centre, Portobelo Preschool and Nursery, Honeybeez Preschool Nursery, Kaiapoi Collision Repair, Kaiapoi Automotive, Red Badge Security, Southern Viking Limited, The Rainbow Early Learning Centre, Papanui Youth Development Trust, Woodend Primary School, Little Wonders Pegasus Early Childhood Centre, Christchurch City Council Park Rangers, Precut Construction, Steven Clarke Chartered Accountants, Glenstar Kennels, Belle Interiors Christchurch, Kendal Vehicle Service Centre and McGirr Motors Christchurch.
