OPAIC student Bhavdeep Singh is proud to be an essential worker helping to serve the community during Covid-19.
He’s one of many students and graduates helping New Zealand get through the global crisis.
Bhavdeep comes from New Delhi in India and has been in New Zealand for almost a year.
As well as studying towards the Gradate Diploma in Applied Management, he works at Countdown.
Bhavdeep dedicates his afternoons to his study, works the night shift, and attends online classes when scheduled. He even pulls over to attend 8am classes on his way home from his shift.
OPAIC moved all classes and support services online when the country entered lockdown. We’re continuing to deliver our offerings online for the time being.
Bhavdeep says online learning has been a good experience, which has enabled him to juggle his study and work commitments.
He was a bit worried about going to work when Covid-19 was first detected in New Zealand, but he has taken every precaution to keep safe.
He says he feels proud of his essential work and takes his duties very seriously.
