Teachers lead in more than just Maths and Science
Eunice High School is not just about Maths and Science. It is certainly true that Eunice’s performance in Mathematics and Physical Science – since comparative statistics were supplied for the first time in 2000 – has been exceptional.
But, it is the school’s all-round quality which sets it apart. The school also earned a number-one spot in the other scarce skill subject, Accounting. And in Computer Applications Technology, Eunice’s matric average with 44 candidates was 17% higher than the school ranked second in the subject in Bloemfontein.
In the Arts subjects, Dramatic Arts and Visual Arts, the two teachers, Dr Niel van Niekerk and Mrs Rae Gagiano, are the leaders in their field in the Province.
In Consumer Studies, where the two teachers, Mrs June Norval and Mrs Marthie de Wet, have over 50 years of combined matric experience, Eunice scored more distinctions than all the Bloemfontein schools put together.
In subjects like Life Sciences and Mathematical Literacy the highest number of distinctions in the Province was also achieved.
So what is the secret? Well, believe it or not, it is not about statistics and distinctions. When the Province’s best team of teachers earns the respect and response of an entire matric class, the result is a rich harvest of personal bests.
That is what a school strives to achieve – learners growing into the best they can be.
What a pleasure. It is not rocket science. It is Eunice.
Eunice High is proud of its academic record. The school has boasted a 100% Matric pass rate for the past 28 years and has been the Top Free State School on a number of occasions in recent years.
