“Being awarded a scholarship to St Margaret’s has opened up a world of opportunity to me. Through my scholarship, I’ve been able to follow my passions in technology and attend events such as the world-renowned SingularityU NZ conference which allowed me to learn about cutting edge technology and the ways of the future, compete in local STEM competitions where I can strive to reach my goals and lead technology clubs here at St Margaret’s where I can help others to do so too. If I can dream it, here I can endeavour to make it happen! I’ve been supported in my goals by the incredible teachers and learning spaces here. This scholarship has allowed me to continue my pursuit of knowledge and for my unique learning needs to be catered for. It means that I know I am always in a friendly and encouraging environment during and outside of school hours.
I know that being able to attend school here at St Margaret’s has and will continue to impact on my life well into the future. My schooling here enables me to learn at my own pace with like-minded peers so that I benefit in the present, and in future I will have the opportunity to achieve an IB Diploma, which will benefit me throughout the rest of my life. I am so grateful for my scholarship here, and all the opportunities this opens up for me!”
