Our Impact

Academic

InZone’s academic results, both historical and from 2018 demonstrate the extent to which the InZone opportunity is acting as a circuit-breaker for our rangatahi.  InZone student achievement at NCEA Levels 1 and 2 in 2018 is ahead of all other ethnicities nationally, and considerably above national rates for Māori and Pasifika.  The Level 3 achievement rate is also ahead of the comparative national data for Māori and Pasifika and almost matches the combined ethnicities rate.

At Auckland Grammar School and Epsom Girls Grammar School it is an honour and achievement to cross the stage to receive an award and several of our InZone students received academic prizes at both schools including Subject prizes and University scholarships.

Leadership

A number of InZone students have been selected for leadership roles in their schools.

To date eight InZone students have been appointed as Auckland Grammar School prefects, including two Senior Prefects, and many others have had sporting and cultural leadership roles.  In 2018 InZone girls were chosen to be Student Captains of four sporting codes in Triathlon, Touch Rugby, Athletics and Volleyball.  To our delight, an InZone girl was selected as Deputy Head Girl of Epsom Girls Grammar for 2019.

Sport

We encourage and support the sporting activities of our students.  The vast majority of our students are active participants in sporting activities both at school and beyond. This is encouraged and facilitated by InZone as an important contributor to student wellbeing and social cohesion.

Stand out sports achievements so far in 2019 include two boys in the AGS First XV rugby team and one girl selected in NZ Secondary School Netball.

Giving back

Our InZone students are expected to give back by volunteering within the community – come examples of how they give back are:

  • Both the boys and girls have volunteered making lunches at part of the “buy one-give one” programme run by “Eat my Lunch” for schools.
  • All students supported the 2018 NRL Indigenous Day hosted by the NZ Warriors. We performed two waiata and haka as part of the pre-match entertainment.
  • All boys were involved in the Auckland Grammar School Tree planting day held in 2018 where trees were planted within the Auckland area in Auckland Council reserve designated areas.
