John Walton Secondary School’s junior grades for the first time participated in the Uitenhage district’s Economics and Management Sciences Olympiad.

“What was surprising, was the good performance by our learners. Although they did not win nor finish among the top three, the learners showed their metal by winning some of the well-established schools,” said Phillip Joseph, deputy principal at John Walton Secondary School.

Grade 8 and 9 learners made their mark during the department of education’s first round of the Olympiad.

“This laid the foundation for the learners to participate in the next round, which was sponsored by the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants. Again John Walton’s learners excelled,” said Joseph.

These learners were educated and trained by a team of educators which include Elmarie Pillay, Steven George, Earl Erasmus and the Joseph brothers, Phillip and Winston.

John Walton is looking forward to the 2017 Olympiad as they are eager to better their results.
