Tertiary Evening – Tuesday 21 March

This week we had the pleasure of hosting eight universities for our annual year 13 tertiary evening.  Professor Paul Spoonley began the night, sharing insights about the changing world of work and the importance of transferable skills. Key points he made were that the jobs of today may not be around tomorrow, university grades do matter for certain industries. University is not for everybody – and that’s okay too.  After Professor Spoonley’s introduction, parents and students attended university presentations and had the opportunity to ask questions regarding courses, accommodation, and any topic at all relating to university life. The careers department would like to thank Professor Paul Spoonley, Auckland University, AUT, University of Canterbury, Massey University, Lincoln University, Unitec, and Waikato University for attending our annual event and helping support our students and their future studies.
