College celebrates 2017 Matric results
On the occasion of the 20th Anniversary of St Peter's College, it is both a privilege and an honour for me to congratulate the Matric class of 2017 on an outstanding set of results, which further reinforces our reputation for academic excellence.
I am exceptionally proud of their wonderful achievements and through their hard work, discipline and perseverance, they have made themselves, their families and their school extremely proud.
I want to thank our Deputy Headmistress of Academics, Mrs Shelly Matthews; our Grade 12 Grade Head, Mrs Cornel Malan; the Heads of Department; members of our academic faculty, as well as, our administrative and support staff who together have created an environment which is conducive to our students attaining academic excellence.
Academics is our number one priority and our students are encouraged, from the outset, to immerse themselves in their studies with vigour and commitment, culminating in our 2017 Matriculants attaining a 96% Bachelor Degree Pass (University Entrance); a 100% Pass Rate and, for the first time in the history of the College:
• 4 students attained a full house of 7 distinctions
• 4 students attained 6 distinctions
• 3 students attained 5 distinctions
• 8 students attained 4 distinctions
"At St Peter's College our mission is to create and maintain an environment where trust and respect for the individual prevails, where diversity is valued and where individual responsibility is fostered within the context of teamwork. The unique contribution of each student, staff member and parent is valued within an environment of opportunity, thereby providing the inspiration necessary to equip our students with the knowledge, skills and confidence required to succeed in the new millennium".
I wish our Matric Class of 2017 the inspiration, knowledge, skills and confidence required to succeed in their future endeavours.
"In Futurum Fortiter" - Go Bravely into the Future!
Mr Rui Morais
