Outstanding NCEA Scholarship Results
The College congratulates and salutes the students who achieved scholarship in NCEA last year. It is important to note this is the pinnacle of academic achievement. To achieve a scholarship, a student must be in the top 3% of students sitting the exam and within 1% to achieve an Outstanding Scholarship.
Of particular note is Marc Rigter, who was named one of only twenty students nationally as an Outstanding Scholar since he achieved five scholarships, two at the outstanding level.
Jonathan Cooper, a Year 12 student last year, achieved two scholarships, including in Technology, which is notoriously difficult to do.
Fourteen scholarships awarded to John Paul College students:
English: Marc Rigter; Biology: Rebecca Firth; Chemistry: Marc Rigter; Physics: Sam Kelly, Marc Rigter (Outstanding); Statistics: Jonathan Cooper, Rebecca Firth, Sayaka Hughes, Cameron Stokman and Marc Rigter (O); Calculus: Marc Rigter; Drama: Zak Swift; Music: Sayaka Hughes; Technology: Jonathan Cooper.
The College thanks all the dedicated teachers who provided the motivation and skill to support them.
