Ninth Consecutive Win for Accounting!

September 23, 2019 at 12:01 PM

The Senior College Accounting team once again won the annual CETA (Commerce and Economics Teachers Association) Pursuits Competition last week for a record ninth consecutive year; an outstanding result! In the past fourteen years, Saint Kentigern has won the cup ten times!

Representing Saint Kentigern, Arul Gaundar, Elliot Watson, Joshua Mayer, Christopher Simonds and Keegan Wong joined other secondary schools from across the Auckland region to participate in the seven rounds of rigorous questions to find the supreme champions. While the team faced some tough competition from Macleans College, Avondale College and Mount Albert Grammar, they led throughout the seven rounds and our students’ exceptional application of their decision-making skills led them to victory – like many Saint Kentigern teams before them! 

The Accounting team weren’t the only Saint Kentigern team to place with the Economics team taking on their own competition to place third.

Accounting team member, Joshua Mayer plans to carry this interest through to his tertiary studies and was pleased to hear that he has been offered a place on the PWC (Price Waterhouse Cooper) Accelerate Programme that will offer him a professional network and support throughout his studies. Well done Josh!
