Scholar of the Year 2014

Congratulations to the Howick College Scholar of the Year - Hanzhi Wang.

When Hanzhi started Year 9, his ability in mathematics saw him placed in a Year 11 class and the following year he scored the top mark in New Zealand for Mathematics in the ICAS competition. By the time he reached Year 11, he was in a Year 13 Calculus class, achieving one merit and many excellences. In year 12 he took 13 Statistics achieving one achieved, one merit and five excellences. At the same time he also achieved Scholarship Statistics and gained Excellence endorsements for both level one and level two NCEA.
Hanzhi finishes this year as top student in Physics, Programming and Economics, and has entered Scholarship Calculus and Statistics.
Hanzhi has proven himself to be an exemplary student and an extremely able scholar. But above all else Hanzhi’s qualities of self discipline, maturity, work ethic and especially humility, make him such a worthy recipient of this award.  We wish him well with his future and look forward to hearing of his continued successes.
