Six-Year Winning Streak in Accounting!

October 18, 2016 at 2:46 PM

The Accounting team from the College has won the annual CETA (Commerce and Economics Teachers Association) Pursuits Competition for a record sixth consecutive year; an outstanding result! In the past twelve years, Saint Kentigern has won the cup seven times – our nearest rival being Westlake Boys who won it twice in earlier years. 

The competition is open to schools from around the greater Auckland region and includes seven rounds of challenging questions to find the supreme champions. Saint Kentigern entered both an accounting and an economics team with the economics team also doing well, finishing in second place. It was a close call for the winning accounting team, however, who faced a tie-breaker with Elim College in the final! 

The students found it an excellent way to prepare for upcoming examinations and thoroughly enjoyed this testing yet entertaining evening. 

Accounting Pursuits team: Matthew Kelly, Spencer Johnstone, Nicholas Vyle, Matthew Wong-Kam, Ryan McEwan (Captain). 

Economics Pursuits team: Kevin Shen, Henry Sung, Bill Yang
