BUFFELSDALE Secondary School achieved an exceptional pass of 93.2%. From the 2016 National Senior Certificate results showed an increase especially in science subjects with an average of 98% in mathematics, physical science and life science.

The accounting results have been 100% for a number of years. Mathematical literacy results were 93.75%. Buffelsdale has a team of dedicated, competent and experienced teachers that go beyond the call of duty.

A 100% pass was achieved in seven subjects and 93% of the subjects had a pass rate of above 85%.

The principal in a statement said: “These results were possible because of intense extra tuition with an extended school day and weekend lessons.

“This was coupled with monitoring, house visits and frequently meeting with parents.” The top performing pupil at the school for the 2017 National Senior Certificate examination was Tiara Govender. She attended Mitchford Primary. Govender had an 81.29% aggregate. - Supplied
