The school achieved a 100% matric pass rate and its top achiever, Azhar Kalla, said he was ecstatic as he had not expected his achievement.

Azhar said he was thankful to his teachers, who gave their best and assisted him throughout his high school life.

The 18-year-old achieved distinctions in English, Afrikaans, mathematics, life orientation, accounting, and engineering graphics and design.

He said he would take a gap year in order to discover what he is passionate about and would study.

The Leukes twins each achieved seven distinctions and are planning to study at UCT. Ethan is going to study chemical engineering, and Stephen plans to register in the law faculty.

Principal Cheryl Naidoo said she was proud of her matriculants and their results.

"It was a very challenging year, but they showed perseverance and they had the drive and zest to achieve. We are confident that they will go out to the world and make a difference."

On achieving outstanding results, Naidoo said their formula was to connect with learners before correcting, and to start the work while they were in Grade 8 and build to their final year in high school.
