Scholarship Success

Congratulations to Paula Bertham who was one of five Paraparaumu College students to gain ‘Outstanding Scholarship’ in the NZQA Scholarship Awards.  ‘Outstanding Scholarships’ are awarded to the top 0.3% of Year 13 students and are NZQA’s most prestigious awards.  Paula won her ‘Outstanding Scholarship’ for Year 13 Physical Education, even though she was only in Year 12.  This is a fantastic achievement!  Paraparaumu College’s Scholarships (for the top 3% of Year 13 students in each course) were won in 10 different subjects.  Congratulations to all the teachers and students in these Departments and especially to the remarkable Physical Education Department where 8 Scholarships were won (4 at ‘Outstanding Level’).
