STUDENT ACADEMIC SUBJECTS:
This is done through Distance Education. We require that successful applicants enrol in the Cairns School of Distance Education. This school wavers all school fees for Queensland students. NAPA will supervise student studies here at the studio however it is important to note that this is an extra service not a requirement. The responsibility for the child’s learning rests in the hands of the parent. The student and parent are responsible for uploading assessments and meeting educational requirements of their chosen academic subjects. Students will require a laptop to work on during their timetabled ‘home’ studies. Parents can choose to supervise their child’s studies at home, however, students must be at the studio in time for their Cert IV classes.
All successful students will be required to purchase and wear a NAPA College uniform. Wearing a uniform will be taken seriously and we expect our NAPA College students to wear this appropriately and with pride. More detail will be given in the Information Handbook to successful applicants.
