WESTERFORD MATRICS SHINE
2018 was in many ways a trying year but it did not stop Westerford High School from maintaining its high matric standard.
On January 4, the Westerford matriculants of 2018 travelled anxiously to school to receive their long-awaited results. Each one of the 167 candidates passed and 165 of them acquired a Bachelor’s Degree pass.
46 students achieved six or more distinctions, 17 obtaining six, 18 obtaining seven, 10 obtaining eight and 1 obtaining nine. The total number of distinctions across the grade was 547. In the province, the school placed 4th overall on the Merit List.
A special mention must be made of Liam Gurney and Jaeyoon Kim, who were invited by the Minister of Education to the premier’s residence at Leeuwenhof to attend the top achievers’ function. Liam came third in the country in Mathematics and stands as the top achiever of the Westerford matrics, with nine distinctions and an overall aggregate of 96%.
Westerford High School - which continues to produce well-rounded pupils every year - can once again be commended on a highly impressive set of matric results.
