Careers and Transitions 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.
The school focuses on developing career key competencies, developing self-awareness, exploring opportunities and deciding and acting.
Some of the key ways we can help students are:
All students are able to request a one to one career counselling session which can be scheduled during the school day. Students can make appointments by calling into the reception area in Connexions. Parents/caregivers can also email the team at [email protected] to make an appointment time for their child and/or themselves.
Selection for this is made through enquiries at Connexions.

The student completes a work placement and has their learning assessed again Unit/or Achievement standards on the National Qualifications Framework and is integrated with their current programme of study. The application process takes place in October and Gateway staff will select suitable candidates.
All Year 13 students have the opportunity to attend a one day visit to Otago University each year, there is no cost to attend for students with the school providing bus transport to and from Dunedin.
This is a great way to find out what Degrees are available, and what campus life is really like.

Kiwi-Kraft Engineering & Marine Ltd, would like to offer to any male or female year 12/13 students an opportunity for placement/work experience, with us down at Kiwi-Kraft Engineering & Marine Ltd.
We manufacture aluminum pontoon boats and ideally, we are looking for up to two students that have some general understanding of welding, fabrication, and finishing or have completed a basic welding course and would like to further their skills in the industry. This is not a must, as we can offer training from our qualified and very experienced welders but a desire to become a boat builder would be important.
We can offer placement/work experience for after school and some weekends (Saturdays).
Successful students at the end of the placement/work experience, can have the opportunity to be taken on permanently as an apprentice.
FULL-TIME WORK OPPORTUNITY
We also have two full-time job openings available to any of your year 12/13 students that have completed a welding course (students that can mig and tig weld). These two spaces are open to students that are finishing or leaving school and are ready to be a part of the industry/work force. Here at Kiwi-Kraft Engineering & Marine Ltd, we can offer Full time employment, apprenticeships, and training to successful students.
