Congratulations to all of our Scholarship Winners

09 Feb 2021

31 Scholarships including 2 Outstanding Scholarships!

A massive congratulations to those students who gained a scholarship in last year’s New Zealand Scholarship exams held at the same time as the NCEA external exams (full recipient list below). Overall, our students gained 31 Scholarships, including two Outstanding Scholarships. Given the year we had last year, these are amazing results that reflect their hard work and dedication to their studies. We plan to formally recognise our Scholarship winners mid-year (during university break), and more details will be forwarded in the future.

Three students deserve special mention: Congratulations to Shiangbo Chang who gained three Scholarships (Calculus, Physics and Statistics); Kevin Fu (Year 12 in 2020) for gaining an Outstanding Scholarship in Physics; and to Tisha Naicker for her Outstanding Scholarship in Statistics. Well done to everyone involved, including those who attempted these additional exams. A lot of work and support is given by staff, whānau and the students to achieve at this level.

NZQA Scholarships Explained

New Zealand Scholarship assessments enable candidates to be assessed against challenging standards and are demanding for the most able candidates in each subject. Assessment is by either a written/spoken examination or by the submission of a portfolio or report of work produced throughout the year.

Scholarship candidates are expected to demonstrate high-level critical thinking, abstraction and generalisation, and to integrate, synthesise and apply knowledge, skills, understanding, and ideas to complex situations.

Approximately 3 per cent of Year 13 students studying each subject at Level 3 are awarded Scholarship, if they reach the standard that has been set.
