As an important part of the Senior School experience, every Senior School student takes part in a number of one-on-one academic mentoring sessions with his or her Dean. The purpose of the mentoring sessions is to help individual students plan their academic pathway through the Senior School in a way that prepares them effectively for their chosen tertiary future.

During the academic mentoring sessions, students, with guidance from their Dean, develop a personalised academic plan tailored to their individual competencies, skills and aspirations. The sessions primarily focus on academic goal setting as well as identifying strategies to help students achieve them.

We recognise that parents have an important role in their child's academic and tertiary future. To this end, we warmly encourage you to discuss with your child their academic and tertiary goals and ask that you articulate your views about your child's academic plan by responding to the parents' section of your child's individual academic plan.

If you have any questions about the Senior School's academic mentoring programme, please feel free to contact your child's House Dean or Assistant Principal Justin Peat.

Tertiary Scholarships

There are a number of scholarships and awards available at Kristin that cover the full range of academic, extra-curricular and school-leaver scholarships for tertiary study. Some are available exclusively to Kristin students, others are available through partnerships for selected New Zealand schools and many others are generally contestable.

A particularly useful source of scholarship information is GivMe, which is New Zealand's primary source of funding information for students, researchers, sports people, artists and those wanting professional development. GivMe holds details of over 2200 funding schemes and is a searchable database. It will give you the best matches of scholarships, awards and grants you are eligible for in terms of criteria, level of study and discipline along with closing dates, application requirements and contact details.
