St Andrew’s Welkom congratulates its 2017 Matric class on another 100% IEB National Senior Certificate pass.  The school has enjoyed a 100% pass rate since our first matriculants in 1994.  The school’s top individual results were Megan Papp who achieved seven distinctions followed by Courtney Parsons who achieved 4 distinctions.  Another outstanding result was Kelly Jardim who achieved 3 distinctions.


75% of the school’s matriculants achieved the standard required for degree study at a university.  69% of all subject results was C symbols or better, with the school’s 12 candidates having achieved 17 As, 21 Bs, and 21 Cs.


Mr. Gunther Hinrichs of St Andrew’s commented: I am proud of these results.  They show once again why we have such a strong academic reputation in the region – St Andrew’s has never had a matric failure and we are now consistently achieving more than 75% university entrance passes!  It is most satisfying to see how St Andrew’s commitment to a strong work ethic has once again paid off.  Congratulations to the 2017 class – you really came through in the end!  Congratulations to the fine team of teacher who mentored them!


Mr. Hinrichs congratulated all learner countrywide who successfully pass the National Senior Certificate and wished them well in their future studies.
