The Occupation Outlook is a great place to look when considering study and career options.

It contains education, employment and income information on 50 occupations in New Zealand to give job seekers and students a clearer picture of possible career paths. These 50 were chosen for their size, popularity, and potential for future growth.

Mr David Aston and a year 12 student Jason Collingwood flew to Canberra early on the morning of Friday 22nd VEX robotics in Australia. It was combined with the first ever Oceania VEX competition. Mr Aston was involved with the presentations while Jason Collingwood did well in the competition, coming 3rd out of 9 and moving onto the semifinals. It was a profitable weekend, growing the sport in Australia and encouraging another group of students to look at Science and technology as a career option.
