Students at Diocesan School for Girls have again gained exceptional results in New Zealand’s Scholarship examinations, with Esther Oh topping the country in Scholarship History.

In addition, Kate Wellington achieved Scholarship in four subjects, including an Outstanding result in Biology, and Amelie Thomas also gained four Scholarships. Year 12 student Lucy Russ achieved three Scholarships, an impressive result, considering she took the exams a year earlier than most.

In total, Dio students were awarded 57 Scholarships in 2021, with 10 of those achieving an Outstanding result. The Scholarships were spread across faculties and reflected outstanding achievements across the broad spectrum of subjects.

Our Graduates from 2021 are now beginning their tertiary students all around New Zealand and the globe.  They have been offered in excess of $1.5 million in University Scholarships across every New Zealand University and several across the Australia, USA and the UK.

“We’re exceptionally proud of the results that our students have achieved through their hard work and dedication in the face of another disrupted and challenging year,” said Margaret van Meeuwen, Head of Senior School, Diocesan School for Girls. “It’s particularly rewarding to see students win Scholarships in new areas, and in all areas of the curriculum. This is testament to the commitment of our staff who have worked tirelessly to ensure our students’ success.”
