Despite a somewhat disrupted academic year in 2022, as expected, it is pleasing that our students have returned to school refreshed, reenergised, and ready to set their goals for 2023. In the coming weeks, once NCEA results are finalised, we will be having our Academic Blues Assembly on Wednesday, March 29th. However, it is important to acknowledge the 2022 NCEA results as they currently stand. Results are down on previous years as we take into consideration the toll three years of Covid has taken and the inclusion of students in individual learning plans, students who left school part way through the year and students enrolled in alternative education:
University Entrance pass rate: SPC 66.7%; National 49.1%
Level 3 pass rate: SPC 75%; National 67.6%
Level 2 pass rate: SPC 91.7%; National 74.2%
Level 1 pass rate: SPC 73.8%; National 64%
We are thankful that on Tuesday we were able to gather as a school community to dedicate our 2023 school year to God at our Opening Mass, and celebrate the Mass with our students, staff, Board members and guests, including current and new families to our community. A big thank you to all who participated and contributed to the Mass, and to Father Jaime who led the Mass and continues to support our College with his service.
Our school motto, Charity Fulfils the Law, calls us to follow God’s commandment to love God and love they neighbour, it encourages each of us to embody the values of community, commitment and compassion. This year we will be continuing to focus on putting our faith into action through our servant leadership council and community service programmes, whereby students are encouraged to strive to be Rosminian and Mercy people who see the need and respond with compassion. Our first project will be Work Day on Wednesday, March 8th, where all money earned will be distributed to worthy charities.
At the Mass our 2023 student leaders were blessed and received their Year 13 badges. This team of student leaders have willingly offered their skills and talents in the service of others. They will build on the legacy of those who have previously served in these positions and they, in turn, will leave their own legacy for others to continue.
Our 2023 student leadership team is:
I wish this team of student leaders all the very best for the year ahead and look forward to working alongside them.
