Academic Colours Assembly


Whāia te iti kahurangi, ki te tuohu koe, me he maunga teitei Seek the treasure that you value most dearly, if you bow your head, let it be to a lofty mountain.

This term we held our Academic Assembly in our Large Theatre. 

For our senior students, this was an opportunity to be congratulated for their NCEA academic achievements of 2021. Merit certificates and Excellence badges were presented to students who achieved either 50 Merit or Excellence credits in 2021 at Level 1 or Level 2. Honours awards were also awarded to the very top academically performing students of 2021. We also congratulated our students who were awarded Scholarship last year and we were pleased to welcome back three of these women to our assembly.

The Whakatauki above was referred to by our Tumuaki in her speech to students. It speaks of perseverance and grit and of overcoming one’s own maunga, or challenges. Our students continue to navigate this as they work through the challenges of a global pandemic. Congratulations to all students involved with our Academic Assembly. 

Thank you to all the families and teachers who supported these students along the way.
