Matrics celebrate 2016 results

Mowat Park matriculants don’t hold back as they celebrate the end of their matric and the beginning of their bright future.

IT was a joyous celebration for thousands of matriculants across KwaZulu-Natal who have now closed the chapter on their school careers and wait to begin the next phase in their lives.

Among local schools, the Bluff, Durban Christian Academy continued its tradition of achieving a 100% pass rate with their top student and dux, Adam Marais achieving three As. Proud principal. Cheryl Ross expected nothing less from her pupils who she knew were dedicated from the beginning and worked hard to maintain the school’s solid tradition. “I would like to congratulate all pupils for reaching their target as well as a huge thank you to all staff and parents as this was a team effort. I urge the new matrics of 2017 to work hard and to stay dedicated to their work,” added Ross.

Although the school achieve a high pass rate, principal, Nkosinathi Tsaulwayo was not happy as he expected more from them. “The class of 2016 was very good but I was not satisfied with the pass rate. As every school should, we aim for 100% and I hope this year the matriculants will be focused and dedicated enough to achieve that goal. My staff and I will ensure each child receives individual attention to help them excel and overcome any difficulty. My advice to my 2017 matrics is to be consistent in getting quality results, work hard and pay attention.

Overall in KZN a pass rate of 69.5 % was achieved. An improvement from 61.6 % in 2015. KZN also produced the second largest number of bachelor passes.
