YEAR 13 LEAVERS Below are the statistics, as of

published in October and November issues of In Black & White . Year group emails are sent out as reminders at appropriate times. Subject Options Evening Our Subject Options Evening continues to be a good opportunity for parents and boys to talk to teachers about their subject courses for the future. We continued with our recent format with the University of Canterbury, Lincoln University and Ara Institute of Canterbury being present. Feedback indicated that having the local tertiary providers in one place was extremely helpful. It gave a good opportunity for parents and boys to talk to those providers and compare the university and polytechnic styles. Careers and Transition Education – Visual Conference 2021 Professor Jim Bright talked about equipping students with skills not just to survive but to thrive through a lifetime of change and uncertainty. Tristam Hooley talked about the workplace changing under pressure from Covid, climate change, automation and many other factors. He says career is not just our paid work, but also our families, leisure, volunteering and citizenship. Career education needs to help with the development of critical and well- balanced individuals who can contribute to the workplace but maintain some critical perspectives on how work needs to change within our societies. Shirley Johnson mentioned the future is complex, uncertain and unpredictable. To navigate through this uncertainty students will need different sets of skills such as curiosity, perspective, self-regulation and resilience. Getting a job needs more than a qualification. With employment motivations changing to include purpose, flexibility and a need to care about wellbeing of friends, families, communities, and the planet, values become increasingly important.
