Congratulations to our Matrics! The Class of 2018 has achieved some wonderful results, both individually and collectively. We are delighted to announce that this year every matric candidate achieved a Bachelors Degree pass. The 2018 group have produced their best set of results in the FET phase of school and the highest distinctions per candidate on release, as well as the highest composite subject average at Oakhill over the last four years.
Special mention must be made of Veda Vosloo, Luc van den Handel, Leila Turner and Zoë Venter. In the final examinations Veda achieved seven distinctions, while Luc, Leila and Zoë each achieved six distinctions.
