House Academic Awards

Our warm congratulations go to those boys who won awards today. A list of these boys is attached as Appendix A to this eNews.

You may also like to know that the matric results are due out on Friday and we will publish a synopsis of these in our next eNews. We are hoping that our boys will have excelled!

At the other end of the school, 111 Grade 7 boys throughout the country wrote the Academic Scholarship to Michaelhouse this week. This is a record number by a huge margin and it will be enormously prestigious, therefore, to win such a scholarship.
