In a first for Wellington Basketball, we have created a space for all students who want to play ball, to train their minds first. 

Study Hall is an education space specific to each year group, inviting Year 6 to Year 13 students to approach their homework and subject needs after the school bell. This service will operate by year group clusters to ensure every student utilises the opportunity to focus on key subject matter, working in a peer-to-peer environment.

Study Hall have engaged tutors from Kip McGrath and Victoria University, spending time working with your child and their homework in a stimulating and fun environment. Since we can’t think without a full puku, we offer all students a quick snack, then it’s into the mahi. 

We encourage all our student athletes to invite our tutors to assist with their literacy, mathematics, sciences, language subjects or simply use this time wisely to work through their study material.

To keep our Year 6 to Year 9 students on their toes, Study Hall have engaged Creative Pathways NZ to explore subject matter using creative intelligence from the world of STEM subjects to hopefully inform and inspire potential subject interest and career paths.

Lionel Taito-Matamua who holds a Masters Degree in Design, will work with these young minds on a community project where innovative practicality through design may spark a potential career as well as deliver a finished product that we hope will benefit a community.

Students may or may not be playing a game that afternoon, they may or may not stay the whole time. And it’s all good. It’s about working together and supporting one another to create a community of smart young minds.
