Schol­ar­ships aid TPHS stu­dents

Te Puke Times - - NEWS -

Three Te Puke High School stu­dents are on the right track to achiev­ing their dream ca­reers thanks to new schol­ar­ships.

Travis Moke, Xan­the Bar­ton and Ahiri Hey­blom have been awarded between $13,000 and $17,000 each af­ter new schol­ar­ship agree­ments between the Waitaha Char­i­ta­ble Trust and Waikato Univer­sity, Vic­to­ria Univer­sity of Welling­ton and Otago Univer­sity.

The schol­ar­ships are ex­clu­sive to school leavers who are of Waitaha de­scent, and cover stu­dent ac­com­mo­da­tion in the univer­sity halls of res­i­dence and other as­so­ci­ated costs.

Te Arangi Anasta, ed­u­ca­tion ser­vices man­ager of Waitaha Char­i­ta­ble Trust, said the trust is “su­per ex­cited” about the ini­tia­tive.

“Our fo­cus has been to re­duce the fi­nan­cial stress on Waitaha wha¯nau and to en­hance stu­dent suc­cess of our ran­gatahi, as they em­bark on their first year ter­tiary stud­ies,” Te Arangi said.
