Congratulations - Rhona McClure

Congratulations are due to Year 12 student Rhona McClure who has been awarded a United World Colleges scholarship to study in Germany for two years.

Rhona is one of only four students in New Zealand selected for this prestigious award. She was chosen to represent the Auckland region and travel to Wellington recently for a weekend to undergo a rigorous selection process which involved participating in a community service activity, meeting a wide range of people, including distinguished alumni, at a semi-formal dinner occasion, and acquitting herself in a testing 30 minute interview.

The United World Colleges programme was established in the aftermath of World War II to bring together future leaders in the interests of international understanding and peace.

Rhona departs in August to attend an international school with a roll of only 100 students, including 25 young Germans and 75 students drawn from different nations across the globe.
