Anje Strydom, a grade 10 learner at Queenstown Girls’ High School, was invited to the Annual Buffalo City Metro Judo Association Award Ceremony in East London. At this ceremony Anje was awarded a BCMJA Certificate of Achievement for S A Judo Open because of her Group 4 ranking of 2nd place in 63kg and 3rd place in 70kg.

Anje attended the Annual Judo Camp at the UCT Campus, where she came 3rd for Group 4 70kg international ranking trials. She also competed in the national ranking events in order to accumulate points.


For the 27th year running, our matric class has obtained the magical 100% pass rate – one of only 43 schools in the province to achieve this exceptional result.

Of the 101 candidates who sat for the NCS final examinations, 95 girls obtained a Bachelors’ Endorsement pass, 15 girls obtained an ‘A’ Aggregate, and the class obtained 185 subject distinctions.

Our Dux Scholar, Sarah Conroy obtained 7 subject distinctions, was invited to attend the Education Department’s Top Achievers’ Awards Ceremony, and was placed 2nd in the Chris Hani West District with an overall aggregate of 90.14%. GHS is exceptionally proud of this distinguished performance and congratulates her on this fine achievement.

Our top five candidates, of whom we are most proud, are as follows:

1. Sarah Conroy 90.14% aggregate
2. Asisipo Ben 86.86% aggregate
3. Kerrith Hartley 86.14% aggregate
4. Aku Abofra 85.71% aggregate
5. Sokhana Mngambi 5.29% aggregate

As a school, we at GHS are exceptionally proud of each and every one of our class of 2018! We compliment all 101 of our girls for the dedication, diligence and commitment they have shown by producing these results. They have made themselves proud, delighted their loved ones, blessed their teachers with hope and satisfaction, and inspired many young minds looking for worthy role models. We wish each of our girls a future filled with an abundance of success and joy, a heart filled with self-confidence and courage, and a spirit dedicated to goodness and service. Go well!
