Otago Polytechnic

Learners involved in the Otago Secondary-Tertiary College received invaluable insights from one of rugby’s leading lights last week. 

Tony Brown, assistant coach of the Highlanders Super Rugby franchise, spoke to 17 students enrolled in the Sport Exercise and Health programme, providing range of coaching insights and advice and life lessons. 

The Otago Secondary-Tertiary College is an active partnership between Otago Polytechnic and all Otago secondary schools. It provides a range of learning experiences that enable senior secondary students to have a taste of learning at Otago Polytechnic and working in a trade environment.  

“A group of Year-13 students come each week to study Sport Exercise and Health,” Otago Polytechnic lecturer Jo Morrison explains.  

Our first module is Coaching. So having Tony comin as a guest speaker to chat to our learners about his journey as a coach was an amazing experience. 

“It’s not every day that you get the Highlanders and Japan assistant coach come in and talk to you.”
