“My job at Greenwood College is to help students in their successful transition from school to University, TAFE, Apprenticeships and or employment. VET programs at Greenwood College give our students the best opportunity to reach their career goals. Upper School Subject Selection is a major part of my portfolio as this ties in with the career counselling process required to guide students into the most appropriate career pathway. For parents and studentsÂ I have put together a series of links which will hopefully give you a one stop access to information that will help you with your son or daughter’s transition from school to the world of work”
Upper School Subject Selection for 2016
All Year 10 students should have received a letter from Jeff Pohara recently regarding prerequisites for ATAR and VET for 2016.
We are in the process of compiling the Upper School Subject Selection booklet that outlines Year 11 and 12 offerings for 2016.

I will be speaking to Year 10 students in the last two weeks of this term. Unfortunately I will be on sick leave for the first six weeks of Term 2. Students will be given information regarding Academic Pathways , ATAR, General/VET and WACE graduation requirements with their S&E Teachers during the first half of Term 2.
I am confident I will be talking at the Year 10 Upper School Selection Parent Night in Week 9 and will be part of the counselling team in Week 3 Term 3.
If you require further information contact Geoff Pielow who will be replacing me.
