Student Testimonial
“My name is Ben Yelavich. I was a student at Mahurangi Technical Institute. I went to one of the Automotive courses with not much knowledge about cars. After around seven months I think I could take care of my vehicle with my own two hands. I went to Tech with my general knowledge on Maths and English; things that were taught from primary I had forgotten. But after the seven months I remembered alot of it when we did the work for the simple Maths and English questions.
My personal opinion on this course is that most people who are taking this course are people who don’t achieve at being at school (no offense) but this is a really great course for those people. If you put yourself into it and come every day you learn alot, you also get your NCEA credits from it.
The automotive tutor, Cedric – is the man! This guy is a person who takes teenagers off the street and can actually turn them into something, once again if they put themselves into it. Kathy your English and Maths tutor, she will help you understand things you aren’t sure on. She knows her stuff, let her do her job and help you.
The people around Tech are not bad peope. There is a pool table and ping pong, also you have a vending machine.
I really enjoyed my time at Mahurangi Technical Institute February until September 2010.” (Unedited)
