Thursday, January 7, 2010

Pretoria - The wait is finally over for thousands of matric pupils across the country and for pupils at Hoerskool Diewilgers and Hoerskool Menlopark, their hard work and dedication has certainly paid off.

For 18-year-old Hoerskool Diewilgers pupil, Martina Moloi, getting two distinctions in English and Computer Applications Technology (CAT) was the highlight of her year.

Moloi, who plans to pursue a degree in pharmacy at North West University, said she was extremely excited.

"I'm so happy and excited that my plans have actually worked out and I was not shocked that I got two distinctions because I worked hard throughout the whole year. I've been working hand in hand with my colleagues and that kind of cooperation helped. My parents are very proud," she said.

Charlie Jordaan, 18, also from Hoerskool Diewilgers, got a distinction in Maths and plans to pursue a BSC degree or a degree in dentistry at the University of Pretoria.

"We've been working hard with my colleagues but it was also a matter of enjoying our studies that helped us succeed. I didn't expect to get a distinction in Maths. It was a difficult subject, but through hard work, I was able to get a distinction."

Ansone Koekemoer, 18, from Hoerskool Menlopark, got a distinction in Life Skills. "I'm very excited that I've made it and now I'm going to study education at Pretoria University.

"I worked hard throughout the year and I'm happy with the results but I did not do well in Biology."

Charlene Leicester, 18, also from Hoerskool Menlopark got two distinctions, in Life Sciences and Tourism. She plans to pursue a degree in communication management at the University of Pretoria.

"I was shocked by the results. I didn't expect this. However I'm happy with the results, except Drama which I didn't pass well. I worked hard, especially during the examinations."

She advised those who did not make it not to lose hope and to study very hard for their supplementary exams, adding that through hard work, they will definitely make it.
