We support students to find a pathway for them beyond secondary schooling.

The Careers Advisor provides group and class work to maximise student vocational and educational opportunities, offers personalised career counselling and planning for students, co-ordinates work experience, open day visits and youth expo visit and runs programmes on careers choice and work exploration according to year level.

Our career specialists are available for individual appointments to help students develop and enact their career goals. Appointments can be booked through the email addresses below or in person by coming to the Guidance Hub (bottom of T-block - quad side).

Our mentoring programme helps students develop an understanding of their skills, interests and passions, as well as the world of work and pathways available to them. Using the online career planning tool, My Mahi, students can access career information, develop their CV and set goals.

We invite speakers into the school from tertiary organisations and workplaces so students can connect with real people and hear relevant and up to date information about areas that interest them.
