Comment from Ms Wandrag:

I am extremely pleased with the results. It is a 96% pass rate and basically 60% degree pass. We had a number of learners in this group who faced various challenges and these results are a testament to the dedication and passion of the Lowveld High staff as well as the courage and determination of some of the learners. May God continue to bless them as they pursue their goals in life. Remember you are eagles flying on high and your blood is forever blue.
