Understanding NCEA Information presentations:
Do you feel frustrated when talking with your son about their academic progress at school because you don’t feel as though you know enough about how the NCEA system works? You are certainly not alone. NCEA was introduced into schools between 2002-2004. As parents we did not go through this system so it can seem very foreign to us. The staff at CBHS are keen to assist you in gaining a better understanding of how NCEA works and become more involved in your son’s education.
We are very aware that families who take an interest in what their son is studying and who understand how the assessment and grading system works feel more confident when discussing their son’s academic progress. I strongly encourage you to take the time to learn how the NCEA system works as it may feel like you are left in the dark with so much new terminology and statistics. These presentations will allow for Q+A throughout.
These presentations are open to all parents irrespective of what year their son is in.
Thurs 19th May 7 – 8pm – Understanding NCEA Stage 1 – for new parents – if you have a first child undertaking NCEA Level 1 this year and feel that you do not have a good understanding of how NCEA works – this presentation is for you.
Date TBC – dependent on demand – Understanding NCEA Stage 2 – for parents that feel they have some understanding of NCEA but would like to know more

Uni101 is designed to answer your questions about university, and the ones you may not have even thought to ask. After the success of our first ever Uni 101 Event in 2015, we will be holding another one this year.
Where: Aurora Centre, Burnside High School, 151 Greers Road, Christchurch
When: Thursday 26 May 2016
Doors open at 7.00pm, to be seated by 7.30pm.
Why are we running UNI 101?
University staff notice when out and about that there are a lot of people – particularly parents – who don’t really understand the ins and outs of university today. Possibly because they didn’t go themselves or simply because times have changed.
