KING Edward High School was one of 15 schools honoured at the National Education Excellence Awards in Pretoria.

We were announced as the second best Quintile 4 school in the country in the 2016 NSC examinations.

A basket of criteria was used, which included pass rate, Bachelor rate, performance in maths and science, number of distinctions, number of children entering and leaving the school, etc.

Prizes of a library trolley of books and computer equipment was allocated to the school.

It was an auspicious and glittering occasion attended by top education hierarchy of the country, including Minister Angie Motsheka who attended school at Mariazel and promised to visit King Edward High School this term.

It was wonderful to be recognised as one of the top schools in the country.
