Turn your passion for Natural health and wellbeing into your profession



February is usually a busy month at Wellpark College with students returning to campus. With changes to Auckland’s Covid alert levels, we have been forced to adapt our systems and get students online via live steam classrooms to allow study to get underway. Unfortunately, Orientation Day had to be cancelled but during the short reprieve back to Level 1 we were able to enjoy a week on campus and come together for shared lunches, a chance for students, tutors and staff to wish each other well for the coming months of study ahead.

It was a real pleasure to meet with our new students and welcome back to campus our 2nd and 3rd-year degree students, and massage students in semester 2 of their diploma. We acknowledge your commitment to learning and self-discovery as you embark on a new career or lifestyle change.
“You join us as students but you will graduate as colleagues”.
Good Luck to you all.

Campus grounds & gardens

We love the fact that Wellpark College is surrounded by trees and gardens, there is no better pace to study natural health than surrounded by nature. While the College was closed for the Christmas holidays the arborists came in to tidy the trees up and let in more light. Our gardening crew now have a big landscaping job ahead of them but we are all looking forward to seeing the results.
