The New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA)  Scholarship is an assessment that provides recognition and monetary reward for top
scholars throughout the country. Usually it is year 13 students who enter scholarship assessment whilst also studying towards their National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA) level 3. This year, four Year 12 students were also awarded Scholarship. Each scholarship assessment has two passing grades – Scholarship and Outstanding Scholarship. Examinations assess candidates against challenging standards, and are demanding even for the most able students. In 2015, Waikato Diocesan School for Girls has been awarded 26 Scholarships (including 1 Outstanding Scholarship in Biology) earned by 21 students across 13 subjects. Congratulations to the following students, as well as the amazing teachers who gave so much of their time supporting their students.
