St Stithians College Matric Results News

January 17, 2020 | Campus

St Stithians College embraces the opportunity to ‘take care of the rising generation’, the evocative injunction of Methodist Church founder, John Wesley. We celebrate our 2019 Matric results in this spirit. This pinnacle of academic achievement in each student’s career is woven into a wider tapestry of educational outcomes.

The curriculum at St Stithians is demanding and stretching, including our leadership projects, diverse extra-mural programmes, outdoor education, community engagement and citizenship initiatives. As we celebrate our outstanding academics, who are among the best in the country, we salute each student for achieving their personal best in the long and hard-working journey towards Matric.

Our staff nurture each student along a path of personal growth in learning and self-confidence. Our approach to enrolment is inclusive of students with barriers to academic learning. We encourage personalised learning styles, creating life skills for the fast-changing worlds of work, entrepreneurship and the digital age. The academic statistics and numeric profiles are important to St Stithians, both for our students applying for places in tertiary institutions and for our College’s standing in the competitive marketplace of top South African schools. Of longer-term significance are the broad learning outcomes and values of our educational offering.

The Matric results are the outcome of each student’s talents and effort, enabled by the professional expertise of our teachers and the support of our parents. We admire the positive work ethic among our students. We salute the dedication, nurture and motivation of our teachers and administration staff, who create optimal learning environments. We appreciate the support of parents and guardians. The triad of students, staff and parents is at the heart of an engaged and purposeful St Stithians education.

Many tributaries flow into the Matric experience. Early learning in the foundation phase and in primary schooling creates the building blocks of knowledge, skill, values and self-belief. We honour the contributions of the Junior Prep, the Boys’ Prep, the Girls’ Prep and Kamoka Bush School at St Stithians – and all the primary schools that shaped our Matriculants.

We affirm our commitment as St Stithians, shaped by our Methodist Church ethos, to the education of young people of character, who we expect to make an impact as leaders and citizens in South Africa, the rest of Africa and in a global context.
