“Gosh, have they reached their full potential!”

These were the words of newly retired principal of Riebeek College Girls’ High School, Marilyn Woods, who visited the school to help with the processing of the matric results.

“I am extremely proud. From when they were in the junior grades, I called them my potential class.

“I challenged them to give me a great farewell gift in the form of great matric results and they have given me, their families, themselves and the school, a great gift,” said Woods.

The Riebeek 2016 matric class obtained a 100% pass rate and a fantastic 90% Bachelor Pass rate.

Natheera Sirkhotte and Martez Meyer attained 5 distinctions each.

“The past year has been equally tough and enjoyable. I am truly blessed to have such amazing teachers who constantly motivate us to try our best,” said Natheera Sirkhotte who plans on studying B Com Accounting at NMMU this year.

“My biggest motivation was not making anyone else proud, but making myself proud.”

Martez Meyer, deputy headgirl, said of her 5 distinctions, “I felt relieved, ecstatic and overwhelmed all at the same time. I couldn’t have done it without God, my family and friends, and importantly the staff of Riebeek College. I am extremely proud of my fellow matriculants as well as our 100% pass rate.”

She intends on studying Medicine at the Stellenbosch University.
