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.Mmateboho Makhubedu, Principal - Diepsloot High school
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.Dale Jackson, Principal - Jeppe Boys
