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