There is a wide range of scholarships available for students continuing on with study in the workplace and at polytechnics and universities.
TBHS pays an annual subscription to enable our students to access a national database of scholarships. These scholarships are not just based on academic ability and many have some surprising criteria. A good use of study periods for Y13's would be to check this link out: http://generosity.org.nz/giv-me/
Unfortunately this link is only accessible from the school network.
