InZone’s academic results, both historical and from 2019 demonstrate the extent to which the InZone opportunity is acting as a circuit-breaker for our rangatahi. InZone student achievement at NCEA Levels 2 and 3 in 2019 was ahead of all other ethnicities nationally, and considerably above national rates for Māori and Pasifika.
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.
A number of InZone students have been selected for leadership roles in their schools.
To date 10 InZone students have been appointed as Auckland Grammar School prefects, including two Senior Prefects, and many others have had sporting and cultural leadership roles. We currently have 2 prefects in 2021.
At Epsom Girls Grammar, in 2020 and 2021 InZone girls have taken the roles of Student Representative on the Board of Trustees, Head of Year 13 Committee and Te Kotahitanga Leader. To our delight, an InZone girl was selected as Deputy Head Girl of Epsom Girls Grammar for 2019.
The weekends at the InZone kāinga are a great opportunity for students to participate in sport and extra curricular activities, to socialise, catch up on school work and bond as a community.
Students can have a sleep in as long as they’re up for breakfast between 8.00am and 10.00am. Street leave is an option for all students. On Saturday dinner is at the usual time of 5.30pm, which is usually followed by a DVD or group activities on a Saturday.
