Managing Director of Reddford House schools, Ronel Burger, said that she has every confidence in each Reddford House matriculant's future success as they managed to achieve despite challenging circumstances.
"Despite all the challenges, obstacles and disruptions that the matric teams of 2021 faced with Covid, they did indeed overcome and earn the glory... I have no doubt that the confidence, determination to overcome and positive demeanour that we strive to instil in our students will stand them in good stead on life's journey. They have what it takes to achieve their dreams, and I wish them all only the very best for the future!"
Ravi Nadasen, CEO of Inspired South Africa, says he's "incredibly proud".
"The Covid-19 pandemic has altered our lives, and this group of students has shown true strength in dealing with adversity, evidenced in the way they coped with these challenges. I have a huge amount of respect for these students and the dedication that they have shown. They have a solid grounding for life, and I know that they will excel in the next steps of their lives".
