It was a pleasure to be in Wellington last Wednesday to attend the 2021 Top Scholar awards this week held at Grand Hall, Parliament. Liston Dux Michael Kennedy was one of only 12 students in NZ to receive a Premier Scholars Medal. Awarded top student in the country for Chemistry and in the top 1% for Physics and Biology, Michael is a credit to his family and the Liston Community.
Michael commented to me that his two favourite things about Liston was the Brotherhood experienced by the students, and also the quality of teaching. He was particularly complimentary of the Science department and to Mrs Laing for her high expectations and high support of him and other Liston Men.
Well done Michael, the community is very proud of you.
