Mar­cellin Col­lege in Royal Oak is cel­e­brat­ing solid exam re­sults.

Pass rates achieved for the NCEA ex­ams were 63 per cent in Level 1, 82 per cent in Level 2, and 85 per cent in Level 3.

Act­ing prin­ci­pal Brendan Schol­lum, who is new to the school this year, says he is aware many stu­dents ar­rive at the Royal Oak school sig­nif­i­cantly be­low na­tional av­er­ages in vo­cab­u­lary and math­e­mat­ics. How­ever, a few years later they are achiev­ing sig­nif­i­cantly above na­tional NCEA av­er­ages in most ar­eas, he says.
