Congratulations to Henry Frear (Year 11) who was awarded an Outstanding Scholarship award in English, meaning he is in the top 1% of students in New Zealand who sat this examination in 2016.
Green Bay High School is very proud to announce a total of five Scholarships were awarded to students, four in English: Henry Frear, Xanthe Brookes, Philip Baker, Ruben Mita and one in Geography: Paige Rundle. This is an exceptional result.
What makes Henry's success more remarkable is that he was a Year 11 student at the time of the exam!
"Henry is an exceptional student, who never missed an English workshop where his contributions were insightful and challenging for all the students involved," says a very proud Head of Department, Richard Brooke. "He is one of those rare students who surprise you with their extraordinary intelligence, and in his case, a beguiling grace and humility as well."
