Mrs L. Hill, Careers Administration —

Next week all students will attend special subject selection assemblies and receive information to support them to make appropriate decisions about subjects to study in 2021.

Subject Information

All subject information is available in the subject selection booklet which will be emailed to students and their caregivers. This information is also on our OGHS careers website. Along with the subject selection booklet, students will be given a discussion sheet to help them with their decision making. Please take some time to chat with your student about the subjects they are considering for next year. Your input and experience is very valuable! Subject selection will also have been discussed during the Student Learning Conferences held on Thursday 20 August. Senior students will also have recently received a Term 3 report, which can assist discussions.

What subjects should I take?

It is very important that students choose subjects from a broad range of learning areas so that their opportunities for further study, apprenticeships or work remain open to them. If they are confident of their future career or study pathway, it is a good idea to check out the requirements and prerequisites for this type of work or study. A very good website to explore career opportunities and subjects required for these careers is: www.careers.govt.nz


What is NCEA?

What is Literacy and Numeracy?

What is University Entrance?

The OGHS Careers Website will also help answer these questions.
