“What are you going to do when you leave school?” is what our senior students are working out with tertiary planning in full swing.
Since March, they’ve been exploring their options.
For most students planning on further education that means not just what to study, but where, and how they’ll pay for it.
Representatives from polytechnics and universities have been visiting the school, and students have been traveling to various campuses to see what’s available.
Our careers adviser Debbie Driver has taken students as far as Otago in Dunedin to check out what’s on offer.
Waikato University has had its open day. And a big contingent from Thames High headed to Hamilton for the Careers Expo at the Claudelands Event Centre at the start of June.
There’s a lot to think about which is why we put so much effort into helping students find the right course, in the right place.
