LATEST MATRIC RESULTS

Results from the Class of 2020

St Benedict’s College is proud to release our Matric results for 2020 after a lengthy delay since the boys wrote their final exam back in November.

Following an unprecedented year of much uncertainty we salute our boys for achieving their personal best in many aspects. Our staff have worked tirelessly, over the last year in particular, to ensure that they connected with each individual in order to nurture them along a path of personal growth in learning and self-confidence.

While we highlight the top achievers, we also acknowledge the accomplishments of each boy who has gone above and beyond our expectations. Across the past five years our boys have been encouraged to set achievable goals and to take responsibility for their own personal learning in order to realise these academic goals. St Benedict’s College has a proud academic history and has produced fantastic matric results year after year. This year's final results have been accomplished through individual effort, the unequivocal support from parents and the determination of our superb teachers. We, as a school, are pleased with the boys’ performance and congratulate them on their fine achievements.

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