NZBW was initiated by Rotary District 9940 and has been run annually for over 16 years. Rotary’s involvement is extending throughout New Zealand. Rotary assists in screening candidates, and Rotary Clubs throughout NZ have been successful in organising sponsorships and may be able to subsidise travel costs.
This course is designed to give Y12 (sixth) and Y13 (seventh) form students a better understanding of and greater exposure to, the business community. There are two business weeks, one held at Palmerston North Boys High School in week one of the term two holidays and the other at Epsom in week two of the term two holiday.
The course is usually held in July each year.
The Rotary Club of Wellington North sees this as an opportunity to make a positive investment in our young people by giving students the chance to experience first hand the ups and downs of the business world. We are committed to sponsoring two worthy students annually.
