Students put out good result
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.
