Becoming Future Ready
Our Pastoral Care and unique Learning for Life curriculum in the Senior School empowers students to take the lead in deciding what they will do after they leave Kristin School.
Exceptional support is provided through our mentoring program, enrichment opportunities, co curricular experiences, iFuture workshops, futures evening, futures camp as well as other university visits. We guide students as they consider a range of options and help them to settle on a pathway that reflects their beliefs and talents as well as challenging them to be their best.
Our Learning for Life curriculum starts in Year 11 and focuses on developing the skills required for success in the 21st Century through our Emotional Intelligence (EI) programmme and our Morrisby based Careers programme.
The ‘Future Me’ module utilises the interests and aptitude psychometric and careers profiling from the internationally respected Morrisby Organisation to both support and lead individuals in their exploration of the different pathways that they may wish to take. Students can continue to use this resource throughout the Senior School and throughout their working lives.
We utilise the Golden Circle approach developed by Simon Sinek which begins with an examination of intrinsic and extrinsic motivations and then encourages our students to discover how they might develop these and what careers that might lead to.
The Morrisby Profiling System
The Morrisby Profile collects information on career interests and personality (the 'conversation starter' side of careers testing) and includes a reliable and valid Differential Ability Profile measuring 5 aptitude areas.
Differential Ability Profiles generate a model of 'intellectual structure' which is not available from an interview but is often very helpful in guidance situations and can be that 'ah hah' moment for students.
Kristin Graduate Destinations
We have an incredible network of Kristin Alumni located throughout NZ and around the world. They build on their foundation at Kristin, achieving success and making a real contribution to our world.
We are proud of the diversity of choice that we successfully support each year. NZ is our most popular destination with the Auckland and Wellington regions topping the list. However our specialist staff also support a wide range of overseas options; 81% of our applicants to the USA recently matriculated to a World Ranked Top 50 (THE) University and our placements in the UK regularly include the likes of Oxford, Cambridge and Imperial College London. Australia and the SE Asia region are also destinations of choice, with Kristin Graduates frequently choosing Sydney, Melbourne, Hong Kong and Singapore.
