Unsure what to do after school?

Amy: Obviously coming out of school is a big step. Let alone leaving your friends or family, you have to decide what to do with the rest of your life.

TC: I think you need to weigh up your options and see how things are playing out in your life.

Shevaun: Don’t be pressured into studying especially if you don’t know what you want to study.

Shannon: You can always take a gap year, taking a year off can always get you to think about the opportunities available to you and who knows, you might even miss school. I definitely did.

Amy: You’re gonna make a lot of mistakes, you’re gonna go down one path and it’s not going to work out but don’t just get in a slump, just think, ok that didn’t work, let’s go this way instead and see what happens down that road.

TC: You just gotta make sure that you gonna end up living a life that you think is gonna keep you happy whether it be staying where you are or studying, travelling.

Shevaun: I travelled once I left school and I really enjoyed it, the experiences, seeing different countries and how different they are from New Zealand.

Francis: Find a lot of people who have left school and just talk to them as much as you can and you’ll probably get a few different ideas off of them.

Amy: Your life is full of trial and error at this age and you just got to roll with it.
