I know that many accolades will be forthcoming for these top achievers, but I wish to praise most highly those girls who have overcome many struggles over the years to attain good results. They may not be one of the academic “stars”, but in their own right, they have achieved their personal best and their Bs, Cs and Ds are worthy of equal honour.
Sincere congratulations go to the teachers of all the girls. From the Foundation Phase to this year, staff have educated, enriched and nurtured the girls to attain their best. The distinctions achieved per subject are as follows.
|Subject||Number of Distinctions||Percentage of Distinctions in Class|
|Advanced Programme English||1||7%|
|Advanced Programme Maths||3||38%|
Omission of the role that the parents play would be an oversight because they have sacrificed so much for their precious daughters.
Thank you to them for their support over the years – you may now bask in the reflected glory of your daughters.
Congratulations once again - I wish you compliments of the season and all the very best for 2018 and always.
