hree students who recently graduated with their
Servilles Academy Advanced Certificate had the
opportunity to work backstage at New Zealand
Fashion Week’s Servilles Show. “It was incredible
to work alongside such talented stylists on the show,” said
Alice Tucker. “The work was so innovative, stuff that you
don’t see day to day in the salons.”
Like Alice, Fern Turner and Diane Hemara, who had
been in the same class, worked all day assisting behind the
scenes. Fern said, “Loved it! It was a privilege to be able
to contribute to an event that showed so much skill and
technique.” Diane said it was the “highlight of my year!”

Living the dream
fter retiring to Cromwell, John Morton
and his wife were running a small
cherry orchard and selling through
regional farmers’ markets. But the
couple wanted to target a larger audience.
To improve his business computing skills,
80-year-old John enrolled in the National
Certificate in Computing (Level 2) at Otago
Polytechnic’s Central Otago campus in Cromwell.
“This qualification was exactly what I was
looking for;” he said. “It resulted in basic
competence using the Microsoft Office suite of
programs and was aimed at individuals who use a
computer in their life and work.”
With a flexible study schedule, John was
easily able to fit his learning around his other
commitments. He then built a business webpage
and sold his produce on TradeMe. The business
now caters to a nationwide market.
You can also study in the beautiful Central
Otago region. Otago Polytechnic is hosting open
days in their Auckland campus (350 Queen St,
Auckland City) on November 1 and 2, 2012 and in
their Otago campus (Molyneux St, Cromwell) on
December 1, 2012.
