Auckland Seventh-day Adventist High School achieves National honours

Posted on Dec 01 2008

Great excitement was generated at ASDAH during 2008 when three teams registered with the Young Enterprise Programme. One group, DICE (a Year 12 group led by Melissa Alach (Managing Director), Steven Ryan (Sales Director), Sophie Tew (Communications Director), Edward Davidson (Finance Director), Blair Marnitz (Marketing Director), Chris Jones (Personnel Director) and professionally mentored by Mr Paul Honnor) achieved much success.

DICE took the opportunity to enter into every business challenge offered during 2008, thus competing against schools of all deciles across the Manukau Districts and for their efforts, were awarded numerous certificates and commendations. DICE also achieved the following awards ― second place in the Oral competition and won the “People’s Choice Award”; “Best Table Award” at the Trade Fair; “Financial Award” for their Annual Plan at the Regional Awards and the “Marketing and Sales Excellence Award” at the National finals competition held in Wellington.

During his acceptance speech at the National finals, Steven Ryan (in front of many business leaders and Parliamentarians) on behalf of the group, acknowledged their school ASDAH, the teachers who had supported them and the fact that Jesus Christ was the driving force for their success.

Following the National Award, Steven and Melissa were invited to speak at the Chartered Institute of Accountants Centenary meetings, and to present their company’s winning concept, “Mosquito Ring tones set to snippets of music”.

Four members of DICE have also passed the external Cambridge exam achieving the equivalent of 14 NCEA credits at Level Three.

In addition to all the achievements of DICE, the school was proud to find out that Mrs Upton (the teacher in charge of the projects) had been awarded NZ Commerce Teacher of the Year 2008 at the Regional Awards.

School Principal, Mr Ah-Young said "the school is very proud of its students’ achievements in the nationally recognised NZ Enterprise Programme for secondary schools this year and through their efforts it represents the first time that any Adventist School in New Zealand has achieved National honours in the NZ Enterprise Programme".
