WA’s excellent results

VAALWATER — The Waterberg Academy Matric class of 2017 wrote the rigorous IEB National Senior Certificate and achieved a 100% pass rate.
In addition to this, 83,3% of them gained a BD or “university pass”. Two learners, Ayden Walker and Jesse Dowinton, each obtained three distinctions, with Jesse also passing the challenging Advanced Programme English as an eight subject. Dux, Ayden, has accepted a scholarship to attend the University of Pretoria.
Waterberg Academy has worked hard to position itself as a school that offers an outstanding academic education, and its results over the last few years indicate that the efforts of the teachers and learners in this regard are bearing fruit.
Rachel Calcott, Dux of 2016, had been accepted into Yale, one of the top Ivy League College in the United States – this as a result of her outstanding matric results in 2016, a 99,99 SAT score and a well-rounded background which includes music and community upliftment.
The school also received a Certificate of Excellence from the University of Pretoria for being one of the 30 Top Performing Schools in South Africa in Physical Science.
Headmaster, Mark Godfrey, said he wished to congratulate the Matrics of 2017 on the excellent results and also to thank his teachers for working so hard with the group and encouraging them to succeed.
