Alumni News

Carl and Marné Leonard were in our very first matric group, The Class of 2009. They got married in 2011 and worked together at the Bushveld Mission for many years. In fact, Carl has often been called upon to conduct Monday prayer assemblies here at the Academy. In recent years this couple has been working in Steenbokpan where Carl manages a drug rehabilitation centre. We are happy to announce that they had their first child this week. Little Lea greeted the world on Wednesday and both grandmothers (who teach in the Pre Preparatory here) were “over the moon.”

 Conquesta 2017

The Conquesta 2017 results were published in the Newsletter last year when they became available. However, we have just received a certificate which congratulates the Academy on achieving 16th place overall in Southern Africa in Afrikaans. This is a regional Olympiad and schools from Swaziland, Mozambique and Botswana participate. Making this all the more excellent a result. This is one place better than our 17th place in 2016. Well done, Junior Preparatory teachers and learners.

Mrs van Niekerk with our 16th place certificate.
