On Friday 22 October the St Andrew’s College Academy bid farewell to the first cohort of pupils as they start their matric final exams. The day was filled with emotions as the pupils have become part of the Andrean community. A number of St Andrew’s College staff and pupils enjoyed the afternoon and shared words of encouragement as they wished the pupils well in their exams and the journey that they are about to begin. The pupils started their journey with the St Andrew’s College Academy in 2019 when Nombulelo Secondary School and St Andrew’s united to forge Academic Excellence. The partnership has since grown from strength to strength and continues to house 15 Grade 10s and 5 Grade 12s this year.
The enrichment programme focuses on Maths, Physical Science and English with an aim to improve matric results and increase the number of university acceptances.
