I don't quite understand what a tertiary organization (pardon the American spelling) is.  Would this be a college or undergraduate university?  I'm curious about this.  Please do tell.

In New Zealand:

Primary: five years old - 10

"Intermediate": 11-12 (there are some schools designed just for this age bracket)

Secondary: 13 - 17

Tertiary: Beyond 17, optional study. E.g. University (which is american 'College'), Polytechnics.

Thanks, Nigel.   I kinda thought so, but had to ask.  Appreciate it.  Best to you and yours.
