Pathways to Success


Preparing students for their future

The Careers department at Green Bay High School works alongside students to achieve academic success as well as providing support for them to develop their career pathways. Students become engaged in their education, set goals for their future while being empowered to have a better understanding of which vocation or further study to follow when they leave school. Ongoing communication and support with families via year level Careers Google Classrooms helps to guide students and their whanau towards career based conversations, supplying links and up to date information on upcoming courses, jobs, scholarships, tertiary course planning, apprenticeships, and other opportunities.
