Celebrating our Top Scholars

By Chris Knopp | Posted: Wednesday March 6, 2019

With almost 1/3 of Year 11 and 12 students gaining scholar's ties from 2018 results, McGlashan continues to prioritise high academic achievement.

The introduction of the McGlashan Scholar's tie, along with the 100 & 200 Club concept in the early 2000's has been pivotal to the development of a strong academic culture within the college.  The photos and recipient lists in this article are testimony to the continued positive attitude and pride that our boys take in their achievements.  

However, with the number of national education reviews currently underway, it seems timely for us too, to re-focus on what we are trying to achieve academically - what is the real measure of excellence?  For students completing NCEA qualifications this year, the requirements for a scholars tie will focus more on high achievement in individual subjects and less on total excellence credits aggregated across multiple subjects.  Further details can be found here...

But for now, here are the deserving recipients of the 2018 Scholars' Ties and 100 / 200 Club.
