I would like to thank the grade team, headed by Mrs Karin Grebe and assisted by Mrs Gazelle Avenant and Mr Paul Usher, for their leadership of the Class of 2017 and all the Bergvliet High staff for their professional and dedicated teaching and guidance which made these results possible.  Further evidence that at Bergvliet High School we offer a world class education that empowers our pupils to find their place as meaningful citizens in both the South African and global economies. We are very proud of these results and it reflects on the truly talented teachers who work at Bergvliet High as well as the outstanding pupils who attend the School.

Bergvliet High School as a community school has done exceptionally in these exams both at the top and the bottom end and this is cause for celebration.  All credit to the staff who have gone the extra mile time and time again when it felt like it was not possible to do so and to the pupils who displayed the pride they have in their results and their School. Class of 2017 – a job well done!!

We look forward to even better results from the Class of 2018.Kind regards
Stephen Price
