Avondale College students have once again featured in the top academic ranks of students nationally, following the announcement of the NZ Scholarship results from 2020. These exams are recognised as the pinnacle of secondary school achievement, and are only awarded to the top 3 percent of Year 13 students studying each subject at Level 3, if they meet the standard that is set.
Thirty-three NZ Scholarships have been awarded to 24 Avcol students, including five Outstanding Scholarships, across 12 different subjects. Two students (Nico Davies and Joo-Yeon (Julie) Jeong) were awarded NZ Scholarships while still in Year 12, and five students gained more than two awards.
Most impressively, Hasidu Wanniarachchi was awarded six NZ Scholarships, and has been announced an Outstanding Scholar, which also means he will receive $5000 a year for three years of tertiary study.
Congratulations to all our NZ Scholarship awardees and their teachers on achieving such impressive results!
