Hermannsburg Happenings

2018-01-17 06:00

AND we’re off. The 2018 school year has started and we were able to welcome many new faces on Sunday and Monday, in the kindergarten, primary school and high school.

On Sunday, our new principal, Mr Trevor Harbottle was inducted during the church service, before the parents held their AGM and the boarders finished settling into the boarding establishments.

On Monday, we welcomed new teachers and pupils, and it was good to see all our returning pupils again after so many weeks of holiday. All is set for a marvellous year ahead for our school and for pupils.

We congratulate our matriculants - the Class of 2017 - on achieving a 100% pass rate and maintaining the excellent record for BD (access to Bachelor degree study) passes at our school.

Hugh Bouwer achieved eight distinctions (scoring in the top one percent in the IEB NSC for Afrikaans first additional language, life orientation and life sciences) while Christel Brüggemann achieved six distinctions.

Three distinctions were achieved by Rhonda Christiansen, two each by Luke Hayward, Meike Meyer, Elisabeth Tönsing, Michelle van Rooyen and Liezl Volker, and one each by David Cunningham, Benjamin Holst, Chantal Jonker, Sanele Ndwandwe, Jessica Shearing and Philile Zuma.

We are proud of our matriculants - well done parents and teachers for helping them to achieve such good results.
