The Kingsmead College, Melrose, matriculant, who achieved nine distinctions, has been on a two-week tour to the Italian cities of Rome, Venice and Naples, as well as to Barcelona in Spain and Paris in France.
She obtained distinctions in English, Afrikaans, accounting, French, life orientation, life sciences, maths, physical science and advanced placement maths. She is her school’s top performer for 2018.
The former head girl said her favourite subjects were physics, biology and French. But she didn’t concentrate only on the academic side of school.
“Throughout most of my school career, I have been involved in sports and musical instruments. This taught me time management. I learnt to focus on the most important things.”
