Scholars Group, Left to Right: James Fitz-Gerald, Josh Purdon, David French, Daniel McGill, Julius Taper, Heinrich Metzler, Charlie Stone, Liam Miller, Liam Smyth, William Swan, Kurt Dickie and William Miller.
The objective of the Scholars Group is to identify, select, support and motivate top Senior academic scholars. In 2017, 13 Senior students were honoured at the Scholars Assembly in Term 1. Typically these students have earned multiple subject endorsements at Levels 2 and 3, had a very high level of success with the robust measure of external examination in 2016, and all of whom have committed to a minimum of three scholarship subjects in 2017. The Scholars Group 2017 is as follows:
Hunter Craig, Kurt Dickie, James Fitz-Gerald, David French, Daniel McGill, Heinrich Metzler, Liam Miller, William Miller, Joshua Purdon, Liam Smyth, Charlie Stone, William Swan and Julius Tapert
In Term 3 the Group were privileged to listen and learn from recent Old Boy Mr Luke SCHULER (’09), who was Head Prefect in his final year. Most notably, Luke was awarded Proxime Accessit and ‘Most Outstanding Boy’ at his final prize-giving, alongside numerous other awards for academic excellence and sport. He has since completed a Bachelor of Law and Commerce at the University of Otago. Luke was recently admitted to the Bar and is currently working at the listed New Zealand property company, Goodman Property. Luke talked openly about his enjoyable time in Dunedin, a semester exchange in Prague, travel, sport and academic achievements, and about his career goals, as well as gave some sound advice to our Scholars - listen more than you talk, do what you enjoy, and keep learning!
