Bongani Bingwa speaks to principals from the top-performing schools and a matriculant Jubilee Dongowho got 9 distinctions.

It's celebrations across from the class of 2021.

While releasing the matric results on Thursday, Basic Education Minister, Angie Motshekga, has congratulated the matric class of 2021 for achieving high-quality passes despite the pandemic.

The National Senior Certificate (NSC) matric class of 2021 overall pass rate stands at 76.4%.

Bongani Bingwa speaks to Jubille Dongo from Masibambane College in Orange farm who obtained 9 distinctions and want to study Actuarial Sciences at Wits.

Learning in grade 11 was a bit challenging because the covid pandemic was still new and all that but I really want to commend our teachers and the school on how they managed to help us through that transition. I was not expecting a distinction in English.

Listen to the full interview below:

The principal at Diepsloot High school, Mmateboho Makhubedu says they are proud of the performance of the school for achieving a 98,7%, pass rate.

The lesson that we have learnt is that we need to keep the learners most of the time at school because we are coming from a community where drugs and learners involved in gangsterism are so rife. Our strategy is that we keep these learners in school. Our grade 12 learners were at school five days a week, rotational learning was a no-no.

Jeppe Boys achieved a 100% pass rate and the principal Dale Jackson says he is proud of the results.

I can't speak highly enough about our educators. None of my teachers took disability leave, they gave up weekends. They are just angels in the education system.
