SEMESTER 1  |  TEACHING WEEK 14
Yesterday Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II received a new rose named after the Duke of Edinburgh, to mark the day that would have been his 100th birthday. 
It is a special rose that she has had planted in her garden.

Perhaps this week you could light a candle, plant something or go and sit somewhere to remember someone you love. 


My dad died two years ago and although his grave is in Hastings and I can't physically be there, I sit and remember him. What about you?

LOOKING FOR STUDENT PREACHERS FOR RETIREMENT VILLAGE 


Can you help?

Phil Halstead writes:
I have a wondering😊 A friend of my (now deceased) mother rang me yesterday from Powley Village Blockhouse Bay. She wondered if a few Carey students would be willing to preach a ten-minute sermon to mostly 70 plus year-olds at their Sunday chapel service once every two or so months.

If this is something you would be willing and able to do please contact Phil - email him at phil.halstead@carey.ac.nz and he'll connect you. 

ASSESSMENT TIME 


Go well with your final assessments over the coming weeks. Remember the Peer Writers are there to help, the library team can assist with finding articles and resources AND with your referencing! Use the resources in the 10 Essentials!

ENROLMENT FOR SEMESTER TWO - RETURNING STUDENTS 


Remember to get Rob Ayres (rob.ayres@carey.ac.nz) your Change of Enrolment form if you need to change your enrolment that you put in at the beginning of the year or if you did not lock in semester two courses at the beginning of the year. 
Rob needs this by Friday 25 June.

PEER WRITING ASSISTANTS 


Do you want some support with assignment writing? Do you know about our Peer Writing Assistants? We have a new Peer Writing Assistants (PWAs) team who have volunteered their time to work with students to help them with academic writing and academic literacy.

Talk to the library team or the PWA team if you want to know more about what a PWA can do for you! Thank you Rebecca Pullen, Susanna Denby, Grace Paddison and Jono Edmeades!

The team won’t write your assignment for you 😊, but WILL help you with the process of writing and give you feedback on the overall structure of your work. If you would like help with your assessments, you are able to book time with one of our PWA team.

Appointments can be in-person on campus, or online (Zoom etc). For an appointment, please contact the library (NOT the PWA team) as below:
For an extended one-to-one booking (30 minute or 60 minute options) email : library@carey.ac.nz and include:

  • Identify which assessment you are focussing on (course, assessment outline)
  • Identify if you want a 30 minute or 60 minute slot
Email the library with your preferred time and you will be given an appointment.  Confirm your appointment time within 48 hours.
