What type of wasp?

The Team from Wasp Wipeout

Hi everyone, today we are linking to two stories, one which explains the paper wasp which we find in abundance in urban areas, and the other which talks about the common and German wasp which dominates our forests and recreational areas. We'll also talk about how to deal with these nasty predators. If you destroy a nest, take a pic and upload your image with the hastag #waspwipeout! But be careful! For paper wasps click here: bit.ly... For common and German wasps click here: bit.ly...

Supported learning courses build independence

Ara Institute of Canterbury

If you have a young person with an intellectual or learning disability, our Supported Learning courses can equip them with valuable skills and confidence for work and everyday life. They’ll become more independent, and if they've recently finished high school, it’ll help them transition smoothly into tertiary education.

At Ara, your young adult will be welcomed and encouraged by our dedicated Supported Learning tutors and staff who are committed to their wellbeing and success. They’ll also be part of the wider Ara student community and have the opportunity to participate in numerous on-campus events and activities.
