New Zealand Scholarship results were released on 4 February. Through an examination or portfolio submission at the end of 2020, the top 3% of students in the country studying each subject at Level 3 are awarded a New Zealand Scholarship, while the top 0.3% are awarded an Outstanding Scholarship. We are proud to announce that Aquinas College students achieved 10 Scholarship awards and one Outstanding Scholarship award. This is an outstanding achievement by our students and an incredible result once again for a school of our size.
