"Matric learners can now reflect back on their own personal experiences and realise how extremely well, despite facing many personal challenges last year, they have done."

The Matric class of 2021 have achieved some wonderful results both individually as well as a total cohort. We are extremely proud of the class, especially after all they have endured over the past two years with the uncertainty of Covid-19 and the combination of both contact and online learning.

Of the 47 learners who wrote the National Senior Certificate examinations, Holy Family College achieved a 94% overall pass with a 91% combined Bachelor Degree and Diploma Pass rate, 9% a Higher Certificate. Regrettably, 3 learners did not meet the requirements to qualify.

Our Dux Scholar and head girl, Xiluva Mabunda, achieved 5 distinctions and got an 85% overall average. Our head boy, Ibram Chilufya achieved a 76% overall average. Tanya Nxumalo, Paige Harvey, Ofentse Mphse, Lethabo Dorane were just some amongst our top achievers.

Although we name our top achievers, we are equally proud of each and every learner for their own individual achievements. Today, our Matric learners can reflect back on their own personal experiences and realise how extremely well, despite facing many personal challenges last year, they have done. The past two years have not been easy for teaching and learning to take place and yet both our learners and educators persevered through the many trials they were faced with and showed their resilience to overcome the global pandemic challenges and succeeded.

This success was possible due to various factors:

  1. Our educators who gave of their expertise and time to ensure our learners were prepared for their examinations. To each educator from the lower grades to Grade 12, a huge thank you for your dedication, attentiveness, and commitment to our learners.
  2. Our parents, guardians and the entire Holy Family community for their unconditional support, encouragement, and prayers for our children.
  3. Our ongoing commitment in providing a quality education and ensuring our learners were engaged in learning throughout the year – whether online or at school. We were one of the very few schools that had the most school days in the academic year, as we cut back on holidays and ensured extra academic time was available to all our learners.
  4. Our obligation to continuously review and find innovative and alternative solutions so as to ensure a Holy Family education is one of academic and values-based excellence.

We congratulate each and every Matric of the class of 2021 and wish them all the very best in the next chapter of their lives. We look forward to hearing of their successes and achievements in the coming years.

Have a good weekend!

 

Kind regards

Mr Franc Sobreira
