CAREY WEEKLY NEWSLETTER 2024 S1 WEEK 14

Hang in There

It's that time of year when deadlines are quickly approaching. When anxiety can escalate. When patience dwindles. It can be hard to focus and hang on, and being aware of your emotions and pressures can be challenging.

We get it. And we have staff all over the place who can be a listening ear and support you as you finish out the term. Stop by the library and say hi to Anna, Siong, and Mei Ling. Go see our student support staff. Or chat to your teacher. We know there is a lot on, and we're keen as to help support you!

IMPORTANT End of Semester News

With the semester one coming to a close, please note the following:

Semester one ends Friday, 28 June.All final assessments must be submitted to CareyOnline by 28 June at 11.59pm.

Assessment extensions must be submitted and approved by the Academic Registrar prior to due dates.

Please NOTE that the end of the semester has tighter deadlines than usual—the normal period to turn in assessments after due dates does not apply once the semester has ended. So, if you are unable to meet the Friday, 28 June deadline, please complete an
Application for Extension to Complete Assement and email it to Neroli on neroli.hollis@carey.ac.nz.

It is critical that you talk to Neroli if you are unable to meet the 28 June assessment submission timeframe!

Semester one results will be released on CareyOnline after the end of the semester. Your Student Portal gives you access to your final course grades. If you require an actual transcript please also connect with Neroli Hollis.

Student Support Options

We want you to know that supporting our students is our top priority. As a reminder, here are some recent changes and additions to our Student Support Team.

Denise Tims and Jarrahmal Tanielu join the team in the roles of Student Support Advisors. Denise will have a primary responsibility for connecting with and supporting Māori students. Jarrahmal will have primary responsibility for supporting our Pasifika students. Both of them will also provide wider support for all students in partnership with our wonderful library support team: Siong, Mei Ling, and Anna. We are delighted to have Denise and Jarrahmal formally joining our student support team and spearheading our MPI student support.

Jacqui Fisher will also be supporting our CareyLocal students. Denise, Jarrahmal, and Jacqui all have prior experience in academic and pastoral support roles. Laurie Guy continues to support students, with a particular focus on ESOL support. And don’t forget our Peer Writing Assistants!

As usual, you can talk to any of our team, and they will ensure you are connected with the best person to help you in your studies.
