Academic excellence – a University of Otago paper

This year two of our Year 13 students, Kristen Fernandez and Riki Tablizo, began their university careers by studying a first year paper on Ethics from the University of Otago’s Department of Religious Studies.

They did this through the university’s Distance Education programme and took part in a number of video conferences as part of the course.

In spite of both students having busy academic and extra-curricular lives, they threw themselves enthusiastically into the course, finishing up with very commendable B and B+ results. Congratulations to both of them.
