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.
Information to come.
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.
