A new agribusiness programme aims to encourage high-achieving students into primary industry careers.

Hamilton independent school St Paul’s Collegiate has worked closely with NZQA, the Ministry of Education and representatives from the private sector to design a set of new NCEA achievement standards.

These standards are currently being trialled by 10 lead schools across the country, but will be available to all secondary schools from 2018.


Independent Schools of New Zealand would like to congratulate Auckland International College students Tony Wang and Harry Yeom on their recent success at the National Olympiad competition open to all New Zealand Secondary Schools competing in both Chemistry and Mathematics.

Former Olympic cycling coach and Commonwealth Games medallist Tim Carswell has joined St Peter's as our Head Coach of Cycling.

Tim is one of New Zealand’s most experienced cycling coaches, with over 30 years involvement in the sport.

As a cyclist he rode for 10 years internationally on the track and road and represented New Zealand at the Atlanta and Sydney Olympics as well as being a double Commonwealth Games medallist.

I'm looking forward to playing a part in making St Peter's the strongest school in New Zealand for Road and Track Cycling.
