Eighty of Riebeek College Girls’ High School’s 88 matrics obtained a degree pass and 7 achieved diploma passes. Principal of the school, Marilyn Woods, said, “We are immensely proud of each and every young lady who wrote the National Senior Certificate.

“Our girls put into practice our 2015 motto of walking in integrity and we are astounded by the performance of our matrics with some very high 90+% distinctions in some tough subjects.

“I salute the girls and the teachers from their foundation years through to their matric year who prepared them for the exams and to make meaningful contributions to our country as outstanding ladies of moral fibre who live by the fruit of the spirit.”

Two of the learners who did exceptionally well are Ziva Isaacs, achieving 7 distinctions and Yolanda Mni, head girl, with 6 distinctions.

Ziva, a South African representative in karate who has competed internationally, was a matric of the year finalist at the University of the Orange Free State. Mni has been notified of her selection to receive the Allan Gray Fellowship and Scholarship bursary. It consists of an Entrepreneurial and Personal Development Programme, as part of a full undergraduate university scholarship. The Fellowship Programme runs throughout the year, alongside tertiary studies and includes seminars, guest speakers, experiential learning activities and project based deliverables.

Another Riebeek girl, Kauthar Ravat, achieved 5 distinctions, scoring 96% for Accounting and 96% for Life Orientation and 87% Afrikaans Second Language.
