Two Matamata College students were absolutely over the moon at a recent school assembly thanks to the generosity of local businesses Stanley Group and Matamata Veterinary Services.

For around 13 years the two companies have proudly rewarded excellence in the college by donating significant prizes in the ACE (Achieving and Celebrating Excellence) Club draws.

Every student that achieves excellence in three or more subjects automatically gets an entry and with almost 2,000 entries, respective company representatives Craig Davison and Lisa Holder commended the students on their consistent efforts. “We are very proud to be involved in such an initiative” says Craig, “and it’s great to see such a significant number of students making the prize draw list.”
