2017 Academic Results

The big increase in pass rates are a result of considerable thought, planning, time and effort by all and are reliant on a strongly formed three way partnership between students, families and teachers.

Once again, Mount Roskill students demonstrated their powerful learning in the NCEA and scholarship examinations. The big increase in pass rates are a result of considerable thought, planning, time and effort by all and are reliant on a strongly formed three way partnership between students, families and teachers. We all know that a strong team brings in the results. A student’s success is enjoyed by families and staff who have also invested heavily in the student’s education. This is the biggest yearly increase in pass rates that MRGS has ever seen. Congratulations to the Mount Roskill Grammar School community.
