I was expecting to get good results because I worked very hard throughout the year.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our educators who put up with all of our stress, my mum, a single parent who has worked very hard to support me and my neighbour who brought me up from a little girl and has played a major role in my life and matric results.” Yashalia will be studying towards Chemical Engineering at the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) in 2017.

Another learner who obtained 7As from Solvista was Jomanda Parath who said she feels ecstatic, overjoyed and blessed to obtain 7 distinctions. “It was hard for me to study during my final examinations because I lost my dad.

Caryna Padayachee said, “I’m so excited and I feel blessed to have come this far.

Acting principal, Amara Pillay said she was ecstatic about the results, “It was all the hard work by our educators and learners that Solvista Secondary produced such excellent results. I would like to congratulate each and every learner and I wish them all the best in their future endeavours. I am certain that they will do their parents and our school proud going forward with their tertiary studies.”
Councillor Patrick Pillay congratulated all the matriculants for their outstanding performance in their final year. “Credit must go to the educators, parents, School Governing Body and the learners for this incredible performance.
