With the theme “The Final Toast” 80 matrics from Riebeek College Girls’ High School dazzled in their stunning outfits attended their matric farewell in the school hall.

Principal of Riebeek College, Kieran Stear, said: “We pride ourselves on grooming our learners from Grade 4 to become valued members of their community with an appropriate knowledge of the correct register for an event, an empathy for others, an ability to communicate well and stand proud in a crowd. The young ladies of the Class of 2017 were amazing at their matric farewell and I am so proud of them.”

Ambesa Daniels, head girl of 2017, said the following during her matric farewell speech at the event:

“Being female is a matter of birth and being a woman is a matter of age, but being a lady is a matter of choice.

“I look around and I no longer see the girls that I see each day. The purpose of tonight is to celebrate our growth.”

“Our parents planted the seeds of hope, ambition, dreams in us from when we were tiny seedlings. They then planted us in the Riebeek soil in 2009.

“Just like all plants, in order to thrive, we needed special care. Our teachers fertilized, watered and pruned us through education and discipline.

“Tonight you are looking at this year’s garden of flowers and hope you are satisfied with what has bloomed,” said Daniels.
