This year’s Senior Prizegiving signaled the end of another notable year in the life of the school as the Tamaki College community gathered to congratulate our Year 11, 12 and 13 NCEA (National Certificate of Educational Achievement) academic prize winners, including those who have received scholarships to continue their education at tertiary level.
As well as our top academic achievers, Senior Prizegiving also recognises our very best sportsmen and women, staff, and those who have given well beyond expectation in service to the school. At all levels, there are many who strive to achieve their utmost in every endeavour they undertake.
Each student who came across the stage could be rightfully proud of awards that recognised their significant contribution. This also included all Year 13 graduates.
We were pleased to be honoured by our Guest Speaker, Luamanuvao Dame Winifred Alexandra Laban DNZM QSO, former New Zealand politician and Assistant Vice Chancellor University of Victoria, Wellington.
As the Prizegiving and Graduation ceremony came to close, students, staff and guests were invited to refreshments in our Library, Foyer, and Staffroom. Our best wishes to all our senior students as they now head into their external examinations.
Junior Prizegiving is planned to take place on December 11th 2018.
