KHS excells again with 100% matric pass rate

Kingsridge High School for Girls excelled once again after achieving a 100% matric pass rate in 2019.

TOP ACHIEVER: Asiphe Ngcetane was the top matric pupil at KHS after achieving a 98% aggregate

All 88 candidates who sat down to write the National Senior Certificate last year passed, with nine students achieving A aggregates.

Asiphe Ngcetane emerged as KHS’ top achiever, earning a 98% aggregate. She achieved A symbols in all seven subjects with four subjects over 90% and the remaining three over 80%.

In second place was Nikilitha Mbambo with an 86% aggregate, including four subjects over 80%. Close behind was Uyanda Tshetsha with an 85% aggregate and three subjects over 80%

The other students who achieved A aggregates were:

  • Aghosa Agbonlahor
  • Asanga Makrosi
  • Amy Nelson
  • Kazimla Poni
  • Boitumelo Qinga
  • Lilitha Shugu

English HOD Rejoice Marawanyika praised the students for their hard work and dedication throughout the year.

“To achieve four A symbols in English Home Language is a very pleasing result as the English papers, while very fair, present a challenge to our girls, most of whom do not have English as a home language,” she said.

Deputy principal John Kerr shared similar sentiments and thanked KHS staff for their efforts in ensuring their pupils’ success.

“KHS truly shows that as a school, the KHS staff demonstrates a level of solid teamwork geared to success, from the foundation phase through to grade 12,” said Kerr.
