Hoërskool Centurion boasted a 100 percent matric pass rate in 2017.

The school had 187 matric learners, of whom 83 percent passed with bachelor’s degree passes while 17 percent got diploma passes.

Hoërskool Centurion is also proud of its top achiever, head girl Anika Lindeque, who got nine distinctions.

Anika said matric was the most exciting year of her life.

“Each day held the promise of new challenges – assignments, sports events, revue performances, friendships, matric farewell and so much more. There simply wasn’t a dull moment.”

Her family and school supported her solidly throughout the year.

“My family were very supportive and my teachers at Hoërskool Centurion went out of their way with advice and extra classes to help me reach my goals.”

This brainy girl was also team captain at the inter-high athletics.

“My goal was to inspire my fellow schoolmates to reach their full potential. I believe that anything is possible if you work hard and trust in God.”

Anika has a passion for animals and will be studying veterinary science at the University of Pretoria.

“I want to open a practice where I can help farmers keep their animals healthy at affordable prices,” she said.

Her long-term goal is, to, however, establish an animal hospital where veterinarians can be trained and research can be done to improve the health of animals.”

Anika urged this year’s matriculants to do their best at all times.

“Keep reminding yourself of your ultimate goal, it will motivate you to excel so you can one day reach your goal. Laugh as much as you can.”
