Exam Ready

Exam Ready is our programme created to support students through their high school exams.  Written by a NZ NCEA Moderator, we know that this content is vital for every student who is serious about getting the best results she can. You can access the coaching programme at your own pace at your own place and you have access to COACH Donna Luond while you are on the programme for questions and answers.

On January 4, 2021 Coach Donna will be leading a group of 20 students through the Life Ready programme in a special more engaged opportunity.  Each student will need to be able to access a private facebook group where Donna will engage with participants. This is open to 2021 year 11-13 students.
