Class of 2019 results and highlights

  • Dominique Lobban achieved 3 distinctions: English, Life Orientation, Mathematical Literacy
  • Sebastian Hofmeyr achieved 3 distinctions: Dramatic Arts, English, Mathematical Literacy

We are proud of all our students who also achieved distinctions.

Michael Mount offers much more than a good matric.  Our unique Waldorf curriculum allows each pupil to develop as an individual.  We see it in action when we review our matric results every year.  We are very proud of all our students for their academic achievements but more than that we know that, in the words of Rudolf Steiner, they leave our school “[as] free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives”.

Congratulations, dear Class of 2019! We wish you everything of the best as you go forward in life.
