We cannot stress enough the importance of your son getting his drivers licence. Apart from being an important qualification for both part-time and full time employment he can also achieve credits while still at school.
Learners Licence – eligible for standard 29363 (2 credits at L1)
Restricted Licence- eligible for standards 29363 & 29364 (4 credits at L2)
Full Licence – eligible for previous two plus standard 29365 (2 credits at L2)
These can be applied for by seeing Ms Lomax at the Careers Room with your licence.
Career Pathways Planning:
Looking to a future beyond school, seniors need:
• An IRD number
• A personal bank account
• A restricted drivers licence
Our Gateway programme is underway. This programme gives students real life working experience and prepares them for places in industry. We have several students indicating interest in trades.
We would appreciate any tradesmen who would provide a day a week for a student to please phone or email
