Wellington students were well represented when New Zealand’s top academic achievers of last year were recognised at a special ceremony at Parliament last week. Eleven students from around the country received Premier Scholarship Awards. These students achieved at least four New Zealand Scholarships subjects, including three or more at Outstanding level. Of those, five were from Wellington: Michael O’Brien, Roman Dunford and Barnard Patel of Wellington College, Hamish Weir of Onslow College and Andrew Tang of Scots College. However, Andrew stood out by being named the winner of the Prime Minister’s Award for Academic Excellence. The former Scots College Dux and Head of Senior School received the award from Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern for having the most outstanding examination results and the highest overall academic excellence of all the Premier Award winners. Andrew achieved Outstanding Scholarships in accounting, chemistry, economics, geography, Physical education and physics, and scholarships in agricultural and horticultural science, biology, calculus, English, media studies and statistics. He is currently studying science and commerce at the University of Auckland. He has recently been awarded the prestigious Girdlers’ Scholarship which will enable him to study economics at Cambridge University’s Corpus Christi College
