Our 2016 Garin College Dux was an international student from Japan. This is an amazing achievement as he was studying in his second language and competing against all the local students. We had other top achievers who were also international students.

So we are really proud of our exam results! Our international students have shown that if you put in the work you can achieve excellent results. We have had international students amongst the top achieving students for NCEA Level 3.
