Academic Colours Assembly
February 28 was a special assembly day to recognise our best academic achievers in 2016. Ex-student Alexandra Smith (class of 2004) now working as an architect returned to present the awards and inspire the students with her story since leaving Avonside.
Certificates of Academic Merit were presented to 107 students whose NCEA in 2016 was endorsed with merit. Certificates of Academic Excellence were presented to 52 students who achieved NCEA endorsed with excellence.
These happy people received Academic Honours awards for achieving at least 80 credits (an entire NCEA certificate) of excellence.
