LATEST MATRIC RESULTS

Results from the Class of 2019

St Benedict’s College is pleased to announce our Matric results for 2019. While we highlight the top achievers, we also acknowledge the accomplishments of each boy and we give thanks for their achievements. Across the past five years our boys have been encouraged to define and set their own benchmarks; coupled with this, each boy has been motivated to take responsibility for his own personal learning in order to realise his academic goals. St Benedict’s College has a proud academic history and have produced fantastic matric results over the past 60 years and this year is no different. The final results are a combination of individual effort, the support from parents and the teamwork of our magnificent teachers. Our boys have produced some delightful results in the 2019 National Senior Certificate of the Independent Examinations Board. We, as a school, are happy with the boys’ performance and are proud of their achievements.

Mr Dave Jeffrey, College Headmaster Mr Andre Oosthuysen, Executive Headmaster
