Azrah Ismail rated the best in Physical Science in the Western Cape

We were delighted to hear that once again Wynberg had been invited to the breakfast at Leeuenhof Awards ceremony, and were absolutely thrilled to hear that Azrah Ismail was ranked top candidate in the Physical Sciences in the Western Province and for this reason was on the WCED 2014 Merit List.

In this category awards are given to candidates who have achieved excellently in the 2014 NSC examinations.  The awards are allocated according to the marks obtained in the best six subjects that fulfil the requirements for the award of a National Senior Certificate (two official Languages, and four other subjects excluding Life Orientation and Mathematics Paper 3). Each candidate receives a certificate and an award of R 6 000 and an electronic device.

Further than this, of the top 20 schools, Wynberg was ranked 16th. The award is based on the following criteria:

Consistency in number of grade 12 candidates over a period of 3 years (at least 90%) of previous years)
An overall pass rate of at least 95% in 2014
Percentage of candidates with access to Bachelor’s degree
Percentage of candidates with Mathematics passes

Consequently we are amongst those who received an award of R10 000 for the purchase of teaching and learning support material.

We commend our top achiever for her success, and to the Matrics of 2014 and their teachers who earned this place for us.
