Rustenburg – Matric results for 2017 have been released and the North West province is proud to boast of the brain boxes in our province.

The North West has retained their position of fourth place according to the North West Education and Sport development. 

Marie-Tinka Olivier from Hoërskool Rustenburg is the overall top achiever of the entire North West Province. 

Other top achievers in different subjects are: Mwezi Koni from Are-Fadimeheng Secondary School who obtained 290 for Life Science and 300 in Physical Science. Olebogeng Caxton Malefe from Batswana High School obtained 282 in Economics and Kabelo Given Molefe from Thulare High School obtained 288 in Geography.

The Meritorious Awards for extraordinary achievements and special awards went to two learners who have excelled despite challenges faced; Tshegofatso Moruvi from Johane Mokolobetsi Secondary school and Luday Rashad Dangor van der Merwe from Meerhof Special School. This young man lost both his parents and has a brain injury from a quad bike accident. In 2012 he was shot while trying to assist a fellow South African during an armed robbery, resulting in him being a quadriplegic.

The most improved school from those which were underperforming is Tlhoafalo Secondary school of the Tswaing Municipality; they achieved a 90% pass rate, an improvement of 60.29% from the 35.71 pass rate in 2016.

“We pride ourselves as a province with our learners. Congratulations to all of you! Your hard work has finally paid off,” says North West Education and Sport Development MEC, Sello Lehari.
