Student achievement

Student achievement is the core focus of William Colenso College. We provide a wide range of opportunities for students to achieve success in the academic, sporting and cultural fields.

We are very proud of what our students accomplish, and in this section we will share some of their stories.

Year 9:  Vae & Maleha Kitiona, Hazel Rapana for making the U15 HB Basketball Team.

Year 13 Jayson Gerbes selected to play in a professional football team in Birmingham, England.

Lee Rangitaawa, Shakur Rameka, Anton Lolagi & Jayeden Dick were provided with an amazing opportunity to visit Hawaii as part of the armed forces leadership programme in March 2018.

Elijah Paterson Year 13 had her painting displayed at the HB Artists’ exhibition in Hastings.

Cassiopeia Harrison Year 12 received a very creditable second in the recent U3A Speech Competition. She spoke passionately about the values her whanau has instilled in her and she also spoke about past generations who have inspired her to achieve to the best of her ability.  The audience were very impressed by Cassiopeia’s knowledge, presence and the authority of her ‘voice’. She won the ‘People’s Choice’ award.  We congratulate Cassiopeia and thank her for representing the College with such distinction.

Iosefa Sa Year 8 has been selected for the Napier Ross Shield extended squad (currently called Napier Primary Schools squad).
