Macleans College raises the bar

By Hannah Williams

Macleans College were busy this past week with students raising the bar in their studies and extracurricular activities earning a number of wins and taking on campaigns.

A team of four business savvy students recently competed in the National Secondary Schools Case Competition beating 85 teams from across the country, taking the national champion title with their award winning presentation.

Similarly a group of Year 13 Social Studies students have spoken to the Parliament’s Health Select Committee, after starting an assignment campaigning the improvement of organ donation rates and rights to bodily autonomy after passing.

Meanwhile competition was tough but Macleans College danced their way into third place at this year’s Showquest performing arts show, winning two more awards for best soundtrack and the outstanding Rangatahi award for Year 9 student Jasmine Jones.

And recently the first Ethics Olympiad was held in Auckland, with two teams from Macleans competing in the discussion-style competition, looking at different ethical dilemmas. Despite walking away without a win, students were rewarded with a new ethical outlook on life.
