NCEA Excellence and Merit 2021
At Assembly last Friday, we celebrated those students now in years 12 and 13, who achieved academic excellence by gaining overall Excellence Endorsement or Merit Endorsement in 2021.

To gain endorsement in 2021, students had to gain 50 or more Excellence or Merit credits. Excellence and Merit endorsement is testament to these students' hard work and continually striving to achieve Excellence and/or Merit credits, both in their Internals and Externals. 

We also acknowledged an individual's achievements through a Powerpoint which showed the total number of Merit and/or Excellence credits and subject endorsements. Each student received a certificate and a pin.

This year two students were acknowledged separately as they achieved over 100 Excellence credits. Kieran Boyd achieved 106 Excellence credits at Level 2 and Maz Cameron 126 Excellence credits at Level 2. We have started a new award – The 100 Excellence Credit Award. In recognition of their outstanding achievement, the boys were given a voucher to fly at iFly Indoor Skydiving Queenstown. 

For 2022 we encourage students to take up this challenge:

  • For those of you who have Endorsements, maintain them.
  • For those of you who just missed out on Endorsement, achieve them.
  • Those of you who missed out on a level or an endorsement aim for what you know you are capable of.
  • Don’t settle for less than what you can do, aim to achieve Personal Excellence.
