Dux of the School and this years’ recipient of the Peter Bryant Memorial Award for 2017 is Justine Lee.

Justine came to Burnside High School from Westburn School and before that, Ilam Primary School.

Her time at school has included an extremely wide ranging involvement in extra-curricular activities, proving herself to be a talented musician with involvement in Big Sing, Senior Chorale and Bel Canto.

She has offered her time in School Service as a Year 9 Student Support Prefect, as an International Student Leader and as an Academic Mentor.

From an early age she has excelled in mathematical and problem solving tasks. This all-round talent has obviously served her well over her years at Burnside High School as she has accumulated 21 1st placings in subjects since Year 9 and since beginning NCEA in 2015, has earned an Excellence Endorsement in every subject she has studied.

We wish her well for her studies in Economics and Finance at Canterbury University.

Proxime Accessit Award and Medal for 2017 goes to Linda Wang.

Linda came to Burnside High School from Cobham Intermediate. She has proved herself incredibly talented across a range of subjects, often visiting the stage in relation to her academic excellence and in fact to date, has accumulated 11 first placings since beginning in Year 9. She has won additional Distinction and High Distinction Awards every year in external academic competitions.


This year Linda served as a Year 10 Student Support Prefect as well as an International Student Leader and Academic Mentor.

We wish her well for her studies in Biomedical Science at Auckland University.
