World of Opportunity for our graduates

Our College continues to live up to its reputation of providing an excellent educational foundation in all areas of life and inspiring student to strive for their personal best. A majority of our graduates go on to pursue tertiary education locally and abroad, with a number of them receiving scholarships.

For most students, opportunities are abundant with multiple offers for university placements and a scholarship in hand.

For example, our 2021 NCEA Academic Proxime Accessit Emma Jorgensen received a Top Achievers Scholarship from University of Auckland, and an opportunity to study Medicine at James Cook University in Australia. Our 2021 Head Girl, J’adore Harris-Tavita has a Scholarship with University of Otago and an opportunity to study at Duke University. Cindy Huang received several offers from tertiary institutions in the US and UK including the University of Notre Dame, and scholarships from UC Santa Cruz and UC Riverside, while Grace Huang has been offered scholarships by Wesleyan University, NYU Abu Dhabi and University of Sydney.

We are extremely proud of our students’ achievements and wish them the very best in their journey ahead.
