THE Class of 2016 has maintained the school’s history of outstanding results. Their hard work and commitment over the course of the year has paid off and they have much to celebrate.

St Mary’s has again achieved a 100% Bachelor’s degree result with an average of 3,44 distinctions per pupil. The 99 girls who wrote matric achieved 341 distinctions between them – this includes two from AP Maths and three from AP English.
Special congratulations go to the seven pupils who, on a national scale, have placed in the top five percent of pupils who wrote the IEB examinations.

Achieving this in five subjects are Keilidh Clapperton, Robyn McKenzie and Madelaine Postma.

Achieving this in six subjects are Sarah Camp, Lara Holtes, Ruth Purcell and Karien Rossouw.

Only one other school in the country achieved this. - Supplied.
