The tech sector is New Zealand’s fastest growing industry and offers a great range of exciting, well paid jobs! This free event is a great opportunity for young people years 9-13 and their parents to come along, hear about the range of opportunities across the sector & how a career in tech could earn good money, travel the world and make a real difference to the world. Opportunities are as varied as they come – from marketing to coding, from agri-tech and health-tech to space and gaming.
Doors will open at 1730 so you have time to visit booths run by local companies and educators before the presentations begin at 1830 in the Main Auditorium.
There will be presentations by a diverse range of people working in the tech industry. They will talk about their day-to-day work, some of the exciting things they have done and how they got started in their careers.
Throughout the event local tech companies will be running booths where you can find out what they do and the skills you would need to work with them. To assist in choosing the right subjects whist at school and learn about opportunities for further education local tertiary providers will be on hand.
Following the presentations, a light supper will be served in the Green Room and you will be able to talk with the presenters and visit any booths you have missed.

I am writing to invite you to attend the law career event that I am hosting at Christ’s College in Christchurch on Monday 21 May, from 1.30pm until approximately 3.00pm.
We will present information about the Otago law degree and the career opportunities the degree offers. These career opportunities not only include legal practice but all kinds of careers in business, government, and even international organisations. We will also involve the students in talking about real legal issues, and talk about life at the University of Otago.
I will be joined by my colleague, Dr. Ben France-Hudson, formerly of Christchurch, as well as some of our graduates who now work in Christchurch.
The career function is open to year 12 and 13 students who have not yet decided what they would like to do in life, but feel that a tertiary education is an important next step. Parents are also invited to attend.
I look forward to meeting you and your students.

Understanding NCEA Information presentation
Wed March 21 – 6pm – CBHS The Hall
Many parents feel frustrated when talking with their son about academic progress at school because they don’t feel as though they know enough about how the NCEA system works? If this sounds like you then you are certainly not alone. NCEA was introduced into schools between 2002-2004. As parents we did not go through this system so it can seem very foreign to us. The staff at CBHS are keen to assist you in gaining a better understanding of how NCEA works and become more involved in your son’s education.
We are very aware that families who take an interest in what their son is studying and who understand how the assessment and grading system works feel more confident when discussing their son’s academic progress. I strongly encourage you to take the time to learn how the NCEA system works as it may feel like you are left in the dark with so much new terminology and statistics. This presentation will allow for Q+A throughout.

This presentation is open to all parents irrespective of what year their son is in.
