NCEA results

Wow.  We are really proud of the exam results!  Our international students really showed that if you put in the work you can achieve excellent results.  One of our international students is amongst the top achieving students for NCEA Level 3.  This is an amazing achievement as she is studying in her second language and still manages to achieve as well as our best New Zealand students.

2012 Subject Selection

I have met with all current international students to discuss their 2012 subject selection and their long term goals.    This is a very valuable time as it gives me the opportunity to make sure they are choosing subjects which will give them the best university choices.  I am happy to say that our students are very motivated and some have very high goals set.  I look forward to being part of the effort to help them get there.
