We hosted a special morning tea in February to celebrate outstanding success in NZQA exams.
Students who were awarded NCEA Excellence Endorsed Certificates and students who were successful in achieving national Scholarships were recognised and celebrated.
To achieve an NCEA Excellence Endorsed certificate, students needed to achieve at least 50 Excellence credits. Scholarship is regarded as the most prestigious secondary school award in the country and recognises the top 3-5% of students. According to NZQA it is "designed to extend the very best students and to financially reward those who are going on to full-time tertiary study in New Zealand."
Our students achieved 24 Scholarships, including 3 Outstanding Scholarships.
Bruno Willis 3 scholarships in Drama, Outstanding Scholarship in English, and Outstanding Scholarship in Photography.
Henry Gaudin 3 scholarships in Calculus, Physics, Statistics.
