Level 3 Gateway Testimonials:

“I loved doing the Gateway programme, enough to give up a week of my holidays for it! My favourite part was the few days we spent doing various sports around town and even watching the Hurricanes train. I learnt a lot! I would recommend this experience for anyone that loves sport and being part of a family environment.”
Emily Thompson, Newlands College

“I really enjoyed this week of course. I really enjoyed getting experience in coaching and refereeing. I love all the teachers here and they helped me out really well. I’m hoping to come here next year to study. This week has been a great experience for me.”
Josh Crombie, Wellington High School
