GRAAFF-REINET NEWS - Although overall the matric results from Aberdeen Secondary were disappointing, one young man with reason to smile is one of the top learners, Valentino Saayman.
His grandmother, Margaret Smith, was at the school with Valentino, and is thrilled that all his hard work has paid off.
He was the top matric student at the school’s prizegiving, and achieved an average of 53% in his final exams.
Tamia Devos, with 53.5% in the finals, just pipped him to the post to be the school’s top achiever in the final exams.
Valentino plans to study Social Sciences at the University of the Free State this year.
Full details of the school’s results will be available in this week’s Graaff-Reinet Advertiser.
