The college received a 92 per cent bachelor’s degree pass and 116 distinctions from its 87 students.

Michael McConnachie, the college’s principal and rector, said the results achieved are due to the spirit of collaboration between learners, educators and parents.

“What was most pleasing was the turnaround of those students who struggled in Grade 11, but performed well in their Grade 12 year,” said McConnachie.

“We are grateful to the educators in our pre-school and preparatory school, as well as those educators in our other feeder schools who developed a love of learning in the students of our 2016 matric class.”
