Why not try something new in 2014?  
Waimea College Adult and Community Education aims to offer a wide range of interesting, educational, fun and affordable courses to members of our community.
Community Education is not-for-profit and we are grateful to The Canterbury Community Trust for a grant which helps us to maintain the fees this year.
Our classes are aimed at adults although in some instances, and at the discretion of the tutor, young people may be able to attend.
We're very pleased that you are considering participating in further education and learning.  What better way to meet like-minded people and enjoy an evening or Saturday workshop.                     'Put a little class in your life!'

Waimea Goes Wireless

Students now have access to wireless at Waimea. Students are welcome to bring laptops and netbooks in class to aid their learning.
We recommend you consider these aspects before purchasing a device for your son or daughter: - Lighter weight the better, battery life should last eight hours or more, screen resolution of 1366 x 768 or better, screen size at least 10 inches, keyboard an advantage, a protective sleeve, cover or bag is worthwhile.  Apple iPads have limitations within our school system we do not recommend these for students and staff.
