TESTIMONIALS

What Our Students Say

QES helped me learn a lot about decision making, what to do and what not to do. They also offered me and my family opportunities by helping me search for a job. What I like is every member in this programme is supportive in many ways. It was a pleasure being able to study here.

Literacy & Numeracy, Computer Basics

I recently graduated from the Waiata Mai Level 1 course at QES. I wanted to learn more waiata and more kupu as I currently work in an early childhood service in Manurewa. Firstly I loved the passion of Matua Joseph, his teaching style, engaging with us through waiata and the kupu we all learnt each day. I would go back the next day to our kura and teach not only our tamariki, but would share with our kaiako too. I felt this course could’ve extended to the next level as most of the group were quite eager to learn more. Secondly the maanakitanga of the team there at QES were Miharo! Providing us all with kai, as most of us came straight from work. Thirdly, we were presented with a lovely recognition, through receiving a certificate at our own graduation ceremony. I would recommend this course this to all people of Aotearoa, no matter where you come from, you will definitely take something away from this course. He mihi nui kia koutou
