EIT’s recent holiday workshops attracted some 80 high school students, giving them the opportunity to explore career and study options.
Hands-on practical workshops covered nursing, hairdressing, styling, grape growing and winemaking, social work, business and agriculture.
Students were also able to meet teaching staff and view on-campus facilities.
Year 13 Napier Girls’ High School student Joanna McLeod enjoyed her experience of wine-making. She started the process of making a red wine and also checked sulphur dioxide levels in wine made by high school students at a taster workshop last year.
EIT will be holding the taster workshops again in July.
