Fantastic Scholarship results for Dilworth students

February 14, 2019


Five Dilworth students all achieved fantastic results in the Scholarship assessments for 2018, which were announced this month. 

Most students gain Scholarships in Year 13, however, in 2018 three Year 12 students achieved five Scholarships between them. 

Quinn Gray achieved one of the best results in Dilworth’s history with two Outstanding Scholarships for English and Classical Studies, and one Scholarship for Geography. This meant he was one of only 46 students throughout New Zealand to achieve an overall Outstanding Scholar award. 

Elaijah Tuivaiti achieved a Scholarship in Classical Studies, while Anthony Bray gained a Scholarship for Statistics. 

Additionally, two Year 13 students from 2018 gained a Scholarship. Samuel Brown achieved a Scholarship for English and Liam Ottley gained two Scholarships for Biology and Classical Studies. 

The NZQA Scholarship Awards recognise the academic achievement of top students throughout New Zealand. Scholarship passes are given to just 3% of those sitting any particular subject, while Outstanding Scholarships are awarded to just 0.3% of students.

“Scholarship candidates are assessed against challenging standards and are demanding, even for the most able of students,” says Acting Principal Neil Ritchie. 

“Achievement at this level is testament to the work that these boys have put in and they, and our school, can be justifiably proud of their results.” 

Congratulations to our Dilworth students for such fantastic results.
