Te Aho o Te Kura Pounamu - The Correspondence School

Our staff work with young people who are enrolled in Te Kura; helping them manage and navigate their schoolwork, keep track of their achievements and credits, and work towards their goals and education plans. In addition to working towards NCEA credits, the young people have been offered other opportunites for learning and development such as ceramic koru making (through REAP Marlborough), white water rafting at the Clarence, a marae visit at Mangamaunu and more! 

Digital Inclusion

We have two employees - Theo and Toni - based at the Kaikōura District Library. Their jobs are to help people access the online, digital world. They can help you with your phone, laptop and online questions!

Fun with Words

Maree Bublitz - one of our Education Advocates - hosts 'Fun with Words', a reading for fun group at the Kaikōura District Library on a Thursday afternoon from 3pm - 4.30pm for youth aged 5 - 11.

Maths Activities

Maree also runs a math group for the same age group on a Wednesday afternoon from 3pm - 4.30pm at the Scout Hall. These programmes are a fun way for tamariki to get engaged with maths or reading and develop their skills.

Education Advocates

Our education advocates are a team of two; Maree Bublitz and Dayna Hawke. They are working to support whānau to support their rangatahi through their learning journey. This involves investigating alternative pathways to credits - through courses, life skill programmes and community pathways, and supporting transitions between primary and high school. They are also avaliable to work with individual whānau to support them in understanding learning pathways, understanding NCEA and finding out what's possible in an education journey.

Further Education

We are avaliable to support people who are looking at tertiary education - on campus or via distance learning. You can make a time with us to look at your options and figure out what your next steps are!


We are around to help people figure out 'whats next'. We can assist you with building a CV or coversheet, looking for a job, looking at local training opportunities, going through your options for future education - whether that be tertiary or an alternative pathway.

Get in touch with us here if you are in need of support with any of the above.
