As students move into our senior school, we will support them to become aware of their strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes, not just in their academic programme but also regarding their personal attributes and skills. It is from this growing awareness that students will be able to align themselves with some of the vocational pathways that the New Zealand job market has been divided into to assist these choices. The six broad pathways are:-
· the creative industries sector
· the manufacturing and technology sector
· the services industries sector
· the social and community services sector
Our Tutor Teachers, Mentors and Deans have all been very involved in ensuring that all students for whom they are responsible have had access to all relevant information, including the added opportunity of coming in to discuss their course selection with an expert teacher.
We expect our students to treat study in the senior school seriously. We expect each student to maximise their academic potential in their time with us. We expect students to be engaged and to work hard, always striving to achieve the best that they can. We won’t allow students to settle for “achieved” when they are perfectly capable of “excellence”, nor will we allow them to cease working just because they may already have sufficient credits to pass the level. Our students will be very aware that they are competing with their peers not just in New Zealand but globally, for places on courses and jobs. Only their best will do.
