Chance to share news with your community The North Shore Times welcomes news and information from clubs, societies and organisations.

Items could include sporting or commercial success, a golden wed- ding, or an upcoming charity event. Information can be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org (with attention community news in the subject line) along with digital photographs saved as jpeg images (full-sized images only please). You can also send it to us by mail: Community news, NST, PO Box 33-235, Takapuna. Or, by fax: 486-6700. Alternatively you can deliver it to our office at 1 Byron Ave, Takapuna. Remember it is not an advertising service. We prefer email, but if you are posting the information, infor- mation should be typewritten and double spaced. Handwriting is fine if you print on every second line. Please try to get the information to us at least two weeks beforehand to increase your chances of it run- ning in the NST. Make sure you include a contact name and daytime mobile or land- line number in case we need further information. We love publishing photos of North Shore people, especially in our Milestones feature. Try to get reasonably close shots of people's faces. While we prefer digital photos,we also accept prints, preferably copies as we cannot guarantee the return of items. Please do not see us as a free advertising service and ask us to put the same information in week after week. Taking students where they want to be Unitec has announced the launch of Bridge- point -- a range of programmes specially designed to get you from where you are now, to where you want to be. Through a series of Foundation Education Certificates, Bridgepoint takes students to a point where they can apply for diploma or degree level study. Bridgepoint spokesperson, Debra Robertson-Welsh, says Unitec is excited to work with both school leavers and career changers, to develop the vocational skills and knowledge they need to progress to higher education or suc- cessfully enter the wor- kforce. Many people have goals, but we know that a barrier to success can be not knowing where to start. That's why we're thrilled to offer a service like Bridgepoint, which works with students to identify where they want to get to and the study path needed to get there. We offer a broad variety of subjects, including social sciences, nursing, creative arts, engineer- ing, construction, busi- ness and sport. And we're here to ensure Bridgepoint students get the most out of their study -- supporting them at every step of the way towards their education and career goals'', she says. Bridgepoint has small classes and a supportive learning environment. The programmes cater for all ages and back- grounds. The first Bridgepoint programmes start on February 25 and applications are open now. To find out more or to enrol in a Bridgepoint programme, visit www.unitec.ac.nz.
