Class of 2019 Matric Results

Our Class of 2019’s National Senior Certificate results were released at 12:00 today, and there was laughter and celebration all around as parents, girls and staff shared their delight in the phenomenal results. New Head, Heather Goedeke, congratulated the girls on their successes and thanked all the staff who have played a role in preparing the girls for the Final Examinations.

2019 Dux Kitty Fisher (94%), who was unable to personally collect her results as she is working in the UK, heard the good news via a phone call from her mom. “I am absolutely delighted and speechless. Enormous thanks must go to Herschel and all my teachers, all of my friends and of course my family for all the opportunities they have given me and for being my constant support system. I love the fact that I have been able to enjoy music, sport and academics all at the same time throughout my time at Herschel, and am so privileged to have been given a top class education.”

Herschel salutes the Class of 2019 and congratulate them on this outstanding record of results! We have no doubt that the excellence demonstrated here will stand these young women in good stead for their futures, wherever it leads them, as proud, confident, socially aware Old Herschelians.

School Song

We are assembled here in love,
We are united, we care for one another.
The greatest lesson of all is the one
That teaches us to live together, together.

Refrain:
Everyone’s a spark and in the night
Together we make a light, a fire burning bright
Ad Dei Gloriam; Inkosi mayibongwe:
To the glory of our God: this is what we believe.

In times of trouble we support
Our fellows; we are taught to be there for our friends.
And all around us, there will be
That special unity, that binds us all together.

If we come back after many years,
We will think fondly of the things that we remember,
And the friends that we made then,
These will be friends forever, forever.

By Thandi Siebert, Head Girl 1993
