Two Woodridge pupils from St Francis get top distinctions

Two St Francis Bay pupils, Laura Ritchie and Joshua Nicholson, got seven and six distinctions  respectively  in the IEB Matric exams this year.

Both pupils are from Woodridge College that achieved top IEB Matric results. The school is delighted with its Matric results again this year. The pair were jumping up and down with joy after St Francis Chronicle told their parents the great news this afternoon.

The top four candidates at the school this year achieved A symbols in all their subjects. William Melville, from Jeffrey’s Bay and Jason Le Roux, from Namibia, both wrote 8 subjects and scored 8 distinctions.  Laura Ritchie, from St Francis Bay, and Melissa Schulze, from The UAE, took 7 subjects and also achieved As in all 7. 

Tara Munro and Joshua Nicholson narrowly missed out on a full house of As with 6 distinctions. Of the 82 matriculants in 2012, 92% achieved bachelor degree passes,  which is substantially higher than the national average.

The international diversity of the College is highlighted with Yasmin Strohl from Germany, scoring 5 distinctions, one of which was 100% for German. Natasha Clark of Port Elizabeth also achieved 5 distinctions.

 Headmaster, Craig Neave, feels that these superb results confirm Woodridge as one of the leading academic institutions in the region.
