All the Tamatea High School students who achieved endorsement for NCEA last year have been celebrating their achievement with their Principal who took them to lunch at EIT’s Scholars restaurant.

In order to attain an endorsement in NCEA, students must achieve 50 or more credits at the merit or excellence level. Mr Fabish said “These students are our top achievers who have worked hard with the support of their teachers to get good grades. I’m proud of the kids and their teachers for doing such a fantastic job.” Last year the school doubled NCEA endorsement rates and the plan this year is to continue to improve.

Robin added, “Coming to EIT for lunch is a way to spoil the students and say well done, but it’s also an opportunity to foster our relationship with EIT who offer fantastic pathways for our students.”

Brenda Chapman, Marketing Director at EIT, was delighted to host the group. “Last year there was a vanload of students, this year they came in a bus! It’s great to see the achievement of students at Tamatea continuing to grow. We’re really pleased to be working in partnership with the school.”

There are a number of students in the Tamatea High School group who are looking at EIT as a viable tertiary study option. Students can stay at home, apply for first year scholarships and achieve a degree at EIT. This means students can get greater family support, keep their part-time jobs and pay no tuition fees for their first year.
