Dear Parents,

Scholarship Success!

I am very pleased to announce that Glendowie College students gained 39 scholarships last year, including four “Outstanding Scholarships” and one “Top Scholar” award. 

This is the college’s best ever result, and it reflects highly on the work and calibre of our students, the staff and families who supported them.


 Congratulations to all scholarship recipients for 2017

The NZ Scholarship award is a separate exam that students sit in each subject at the same time as NCEA.  Only the top 2-3% of students across New Zealand gain a scholarship.  Within that, students who place within the top 10 or 20 students gain an Outstanding Scholarship.

The Top Scholar award is just that – the very best student across New Zealand in a subject.  Congratulations to Cameron Kelso who gained the Top Scholar award in Media Studies, taught by Mr Ifrim. Cameron will travel to Parliament in May to be recognised for his achievement.

Congratulations to all of the students who achieved in the NZ Scholarship exams in 2017.  A full list of scholarship winners is included in this newsletter.

Year 9 Camps

All year 9 students are safely back from their various camps around the upper North Island.  The photos and various stories indicate that the camps have been a success, and greatly enjoyed by the students.

My many thanks to the many people who organised the camps and made them such a success.
