Cameron achieved NCEA level 1 Merit endorsements in Biological Science, Physical Science, Graphics and PE.  He was a Year 10 Prefect and is currently a member of the 2015 Student Executive Team.

Mountain biking is one of Cameron's passions, both training and racing, plus repairing his bikes.  He achieved a bronze in his age group for Canterbury, and can often be found building or maintain mountain bike tracks in the Port Hills.  He has also represented his school in Cycling, Triathlon and the 3000m. His cycling coach describes him as a valued team member who shows leadership abilities but who is also willing to add to the group's success and therefore acts as a good role model to younger riders.

During a World Challenge Expedition he was a leader of the Transport and Budget teams, organising their journey to Cambodia. Cameron is a member of Red Cross, and has worked both at Berry picking and in General engineering work.

His goal is to study Mechanical Engineering at Canterbury University - and one day to become an Engineer.
