When examining the matric results, and assessing the level of success of each group, we tend to refer to the sentiments of Simon Sinek, who always advises organisations to find their ‘why’ or their purpose. Furthermore, Oakhill is a school that welcomes inclusivity and encourages each person to achieve their own potential. At Oakhill, part of our ‘why’ is to focus on belonging and becoming, and encouraging a healthy lived experience as we strive to help young people grow to find their place in the world.

The IEB has confirmed that all of the candidates who passed the IEB 2023 NSC examination achieved a pass that grants access to tertiary study.

Congratulations to the entire class of 2023 on their excellent achievements and we wish you well for your next endeavour!
