Friday 20 January 23: Wynberg Boys’ High School has been announced as the top-performing school in both the Metro South District and Circuit 1 for 2022, with our biggest matric group in 5 years doing us proud with a 99,5% pass rate, an 86% Bachelors Pass, with 217 subject distinctions, 13 A aggregates, and a class average of 65%.
Headmaster, Deon Scheepers announced the detailed results to the crowd at the Bill Bowden Pavilion, paying tribute to the matric, their families, and WBHS academic staff:
Congratulations on a fine set of results! The 2022 grade group was the most severely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic: they had to go into hard lockdown in their Grade 10 year and spent 2020 and 2021 mostly away from school. While the school went out of its way to ensure that the 2022 group was adequately prepared academically during these difficult times – with strategies like long-distance teaching and learning, online programmes, teams meetings, and even after-hours support – the Class of 22 also had to find the inner drive and determination, as well as self-discipline, to remain focused and motivated on their studies. I would therefore like to thank and congratulate our academic staff, and parents, for all their commitment and support during the extremely difficult years of the pandemic.
Highest subject mark: Tristan Gerrard – 99% for Mathematics.
Our top achiever (and average): Tanweer Chiktay, 7 distinctions, and a 90,3% aggregate.
7 subject distinctions for Cameron Boardman-Smith, Farhaan Brey, Tanweer Chiktay, Tristan Gerard, and Imraan Haron.
6 subject distinctions: Abdul Malik Adams, Fayyaaz Harneker, Thomas Salter, & Azhar Salie.
