Over $350,000 in Scholarships offered to student leavers

This year 21 of our Year 13 students were rewarded for their academic excellence, academic potential, leadership, community and school involvement, sporting and extra curricula activities by Universities and Private Trusts in the form of scholarships and grants.

Our students massed over $350,000 to help them on their way to tertiary study in 2020. Hard work by our students, dedication by our staff and opportunities for leadership and extra curricula within Thames High School and our local community has assisted the students in the success.

We would like to congratulate all of the students and wish them all the best for their tertiary study journey. Being recognised by tertiary providers, competing with schools from all around New Zealand, with several top academic achievement awards shows the high calibre of the class of 2019.

As well congratulations to Alex Juby, the first Thames High School recipient of the Keystone Trust Award which will also provide mentoring and internship opportunities in the Construction Industry. (Link to Keystone Trust News)

And to Leaf Wolf  who received the inaugural Prime  Ministers Vocational Excellence Award for his success in the service industry.
