Career Counselling

Career Education

Career Education is an integral part of school life at SGHS.  All year levels participate in programmes and activities integrated into their learning packages.  Key outcomes are students recognising and developing their skills, strengths and gaining a better understanding of what is important to them.

Our Aim

Our aim is to develop the career key competencies – developing self-awareness, exploring opportunities and deciding and acting.


Ms Dodds is available to discuss future pathways by appointment. Please book in at Connexions with Mrs Smith or via email

My Mahi

My Mahi – Broadening Horizons, Improving Wellbeing, Discovering Strengths and Becoming Work Ready

My Mahi is an online interactive tool available to all students and staff at SGHS. Within My Mahi students are able to build a CV, explore education and training courses within New Zealand, develop a work ready portfolio, and keep track of their NCEA credits.

Work Ready Passport

SGHS, in conjunction with Great South and CATE Southland, have produced a Work Ready Passport to help students prepare their pathway to employment. The passport shows our students are READY (Resourceful, Enterprising, Adaptable, Driven & dynamic) and prepared for life beyond school.
