Learners on the Programme achieved significant goals during 2015 and academic results to date augur well for another good year in 2016.

During the last term, the 71 grade 12 pupils wrote their preliminary examinations and the results received so far are very promising. This augurs well for another good year for the National Senior Certificate results.

The Programme is particularly proud of Jabulani Nyathi who is this year’s recipient of the Dux Award at Kearsney College. Fundiswa Sayo from the Zenex Foundation, which is sponsoring Jabulani, travelled to the prize giving to congratulate him on this outstanding achievement.

The Programme takes great pleasure in that the Head Boy, Deputy Head Boy and Head Girl for 2016 at St. Joseph’s Marist College are all SAMSTIP pupils.

The Grade 8 and 9 Transnet-sponsored pupils wrote their International Benchmarking Tests during October 2015 and the Grade 11 Zenex-sponsored pupils will be writing the Independent Examination Benchmarking Tests in November. These tests will enable the Programme to measure the academic growth of pupils during the time that they have been a recipient of an SAMSTIP bursary.
