Scholarships 2013
by Garry Carpenter - Monday, 24 February 2014, 9:07 AM

We were very pleased to receive results from the New Zealand Scholarship Examinations held in November and December of last year. In total the boys from Tauranga Boys‘ College have gained 42 Scholarships with four being Outstanding Scholarships. The achievement of Scholarship is the pinnacle of academic achievement at secondary school level and the result of academic ability combined with hard work by the student and support and guidance from the subject teachers. In total twenty-six boys gained Scholarships across twelve different subject areas. This shows the College has strength across a wide range of curriculum subjects with very capable teachers to guide boys to success in Scholarship. !
