Dear Parents and Friends
Once in a while, each and every one of us want to be recognised – recognised for giving of our best in difficult times.
Last year was not the easiest year for a school to succeed academically, and so as I left on Friday for the District Awards, I knew I would return to school with a 100% pass rate certificate. I did not expect much more! To tell the truth, I was thrilled that our team, together with the Class of 2020 had attained the goldent 100% pass mark! This I must remind you is the third consecutive year we have received 100% pass rate.
I was sitting, only half listening when I heard the golden words – and the award for TOP SUPPORT SCHOOL in the Johannesburg East District goes to.. “drumroll”.. GRANTLEY COLLEGE – all thought of dignity vanished and I jumped up pucnching the air – I cannot guess what the other Principals must have thought. I floated to the stage to collect that award – I collected it on behalf of all the staff and students of Grantley College. From the admin staff to the educators, from the parents to the learners – This is YOUR AWARD. We are a world class school offering a premier high school experience, with comprehensive learning support in a compassionate environment.
WELL DONE GRANTLEY COLLEGE – three times in a row we brought this award home!
