New Zealand’s highest-achieving Scholarship (English) student received his Award at the annual NZQA Top Scholar Awards Ceremony, hosted at Parliament earlier this week.

As well as scoring the top marks in the country for Scholarship English, Henry also did exceptionally well in Scholarship Biology, and Scholarship History.

New Zealand Scholarship awards are regarded as the most prestigious secondary school academic award in the country, offering financial rewards for those going on to full-time tertiary study in New Zealand.

Students sitting New Zealand Scholarship exams are assessed on their ability to demonstrate and apply knowledge, understanding, skills and ideas to complex situations.
