The Careers Office is located at the front of the Pavilion Building. Students are welcome to make an individual careers appointment with the Careers Advisor Mrs Sarah Shepheard by dropping in to arrange a time or by emailing her directly. Parents and whanau can also email or phone to book a time to attend with their son.
