Cannon’s Creek Independent School in Pinelands once again achieved a 100 percent pass rate, an achievement it has celebrated every year since the school’s inception in 1997.
Four of the school’s 21 matric pupils achieved A aggregates. Dux pupil Nadia Arend achieved seven distinctions and Matthew Archer, Matthew Fallon and Kimberlyn Greenwood all received six distinctions, with Matthew Archer coming in second.
School principal, Mike van Haght, said he was very happy with the results and commended the pupils, their families and teachers for their hard work, dedication and support.
As Vista Nova School scored a100 percent pass rate – which it has done every year since 2009 – school principal Peta Johnson said she was proud of the pupils who passed the National Senior Certificate exams despite having special educational needs.
“Each one of our 22 Grade 12s of 2016 was successful in their NSC examinations, producing eight Bachelor passes and 14 diploma passes. The Vista Nova School community is enormously proud of these young people. All children who attend Vista Nova, a public special school, present with barriers to learning.
“We are enormously proud of our new matriculants and congratulate them on their achievements,” said Ms Johnson.
