WOODRIDGE College, close to Jeffreys Bay, achieved a 100% pass rate in the Independent Examination Board (IEB) matric exams for 2018.

Of the 64 learners, 60 (94%) who wrote the examinations achieved a Degree Pass (BD).

“This statistic and the results in general are in line with expectations and our internal examinations, and an improvement on last year’s results,” says Woodridge Marketing and Communications Manager Lynn Niemann.

The top performer for 2018 is Shimeon Botes.

In addition to completing UNISA Grade 8 music and Trinity ATCL examinations, he achieved eight distinctions, with 96% for Mathematics being his stand-out achievement.

Ten other learners also achieved a Mathematics distinction, with the overall number of distinctions across all subjects totaling 93.

Julia Hayward achieved six distinctions, while Jessica Cormick, Alison Soutar and Christopher Yerolemou all obtained five distinctions. Christopher achieved 95% for both Mathematics and Accounting.

Dr Catherine Logie, Woodridge Director of Academics says, “We are very proud of what the 2018 matric class has achieved and wish them all of the best as they head off to university.

The Headmaster, Derek Bradley, also wishes to express his gratitude to staff for preparing the pupils for the examinations and congratulates the Woodridge Grade 12 class of 2018 on their outstanding achievements.”
