“The class of 2020 will never be forgotten. Not only because they bore the brunt of the Covid-19 pandemic in their matric year but also because they achieved the highest percentage of bachelor’s passes at Bergvliet High (School) yet.”

So says proud principal Stephen Price following the release of matric results last week Tuesday 23 February.

Of the school’s matric class, 86% are able to go to university and 99% are able to attend tertiary education.

“One cannot underplay the incredible resilience of the entire class in achieving such an amazing result as a collective. Where the overall results of the country have gone down, Bergvliet High has maintained its standards and even improved,” said Price.

The three top achievers at the school include Charis Bedderson with a 90.9% average and seven distinctions, Maghjabeen Allie with 90.3% and seven distinctions, and Justine Williams with 86.6% and six distinctions. Tara Dunn, Erin Twigg, Marques Woldu, Nicole Zeeman, Mogammad Galant, Danielle D’Alton and Chloe Daniels all achieved five distinctions each.

Together, the Bergvliet High School matriculants achieved over 160 subject distinctions.

“This is testament to a monumental team effort by parents, learners, staff, administration and support staff. Every single member of staff did their best to make sure that whatever disruption was thrown at the matrics, it was kept to a minimum,” said Price.
