SAHETI’s 58 Matrics clock in 231 distinctions

Hendri Pelser

Under extraordinary circumstances, SAHETI's Class of 2020 achieved 231 distinctions – an impressive 3,98 distinctions per candidate – in the IEB Senior Certificate Examinations. Full house distinction passes (in 8, 9 and 10 subjects) were achieved by 8 pupils (13,7% of the group). Of the 58 matriculants, 29,3% achieved six or more distinctions.

George Georgiades from SAHETI School got 9 distinctions.

The ethos of SAHETI is to engender a passion and love for excellence, marked by a growth mindset and self-knowledge. While SAHETI has a long and proud tradition of commitment to its academics, the grit and resilience demonstrated by the 2020 matriculants has been remarkable. This is evidence of the value and power of education – lessons that extend beyond the classroom. The successful goal-oriented approach of SAHETI is a collaboration between committed and dedicated staff, pupils and parents.

“SAHETI’s 2020 Matric results are part of the silver lining in a year beset with uncertainty and hardship. I commend the Matrics for their tenacity and for the effort they put into their studies. I thank the teachers who gave of themselves tirelessly to ensure that the curriculum was covered seamlessly online – they too are the heroes of our 2020 success story,” said Executive Head Warwick Taylor.
