NCEA Scholarship Information Evening

Our inaugural NCEA Scholarship Information Evening on Thursday, 22 February, was a resounding success. With an impressive turnout of over 300 attendees, the event was initially planned for the school staffroom. However, due to the overwhelming interest that had our staffroom at capacity, 15 minutes before the start time, we had to relocate to the Events Centre!

The evening began with Mr Burton providing a concise overview of our school’s philosophy on NCEA Scholarship, which centres around our students’ self-belief and willingness to take on challenges. This was followed by a presentation from Mrs Cachopa, our Teacher-in-Charge of Scholarship, who detailed our programmes and the advantages of achieving an NCEA Scholarship. A highlight of the evening was the inspiring talk by former Westlake student Debbie Lee, who achieved a remarkable six NCEA Scholarships in 2023. Debbie shared her incredible journey and valuable tips and strategies for navigating Scholarship exams. The event concluded with a panel discussion featuring four of our most successful Scholarship teachers, who provided insights into their subject areas and their unique approaches to teaching these stimulating programmes.
