School Guidance Counsellor
Ms Emma Gordon
High school can sometimes be a challenge, and students come up against problems or that are tough to face alone. Talking to someone may be able to provide support and extra strategies to help. Counselling is available free for all students at Rangitikei College. The counsellor is there to help with any problems that students may face. These could include stress, feeling low, anger, anxiety, friendship conflicts or relationship issues. The sessions are confidential. We use a collaborative approach, working together to help reach a goal that the student wants to achieve.
To make an appointment to see the counsellor please email Emma Gordon, email@example.com
Mrs Michelle Graham
The Careers Adviser is an important role that provides students the opportunity to explore a range of career and study opportunities. We regularly get guest speakers from Universities in NZ, Trade Industries and the NZ Defense. We also pass on information to students about different opportunities that arise and help students to find information on different courses and education providers. At various year levels, there are also opportunities to attend Career Expo's. We also encourage all students to actively engage with the careers corner in the library, and for those students in Year 12 & 13, to be active in the Careers Google Classroom. All Academic Mentoring classes include Careers as a topic, and any student can make an appointment to see Mrs Graham.
For further information on opportunities that Rangitikei College provide for students to explore career and study options, please contact Michelle Graham firstname.lastname@example.org
