Talente Ngema, who graduated from Lawhill at the end of 2012, made Lawhill history when he achieved seven distinctions (marks over 80% in seven subjects) in the final National Senior Certificate examinations. His hard work and dedication won him a bursary to study Marine Engineering at Cape Peninsula University of Technology. Talente was also selected as the National Maritime Student of the Year for 2012. He was chosen from a field that included students from tertiary institutions.
Lucky Teyana and Thando Jobela were chosen to accompany the Jewish Maritime League’s team for a sailing week at an Israeli naval base south of Haifa. This was a great honour for the two boys and also for the entire school. Our thanks go to the Jewish Maritime League for this wonderful opportunity. Both these students are studying at Cape Peninsula University of Technology – Lucky is doing navigation and Thando, marine engineering.
Nhlanhla Sosibo and Talente Ngema were the top students in navigation and marine engineering respectively during their S1 and S2 year at Cape Peninsula University of Technology in 2013.
Nomcebo Biyela, who obtained six distinctions in 2012, is currently (2014) studying medicine at the University of Cape Town.
