Livingstone Kolobeng College (LKC) last week churned out a cohort of graduates from the school’s International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE), General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE-AS) and the GCSE-A2 level certificate on their way to tertiary education.
The College, located in Block 8 Gaborone, on Friday sent off 70 learners from the three levels of study offered at the school.
Speaking to Voice Money, LKC’s Assistant Vice Principal-Academics, Feddy Mutenheri, who is also a Geography and Development Studies teacher, said the school was proud of the results, which reveal a 100 percent pass rate, all at credit grade or better.
“13 out of the 30 graduates (at A2) had a minimum of A* in at least four subjects,” he beamed, attributing the sterling results to the teaching methods the school employs.
The college, which also offers lower school from Form 1 to 5, held a prize-giving ceremony for the lower classes where books and certificates were awarded to top achievers.
“We have awarded 66 prizes to first and second place prizes to top achievers in Forms 1 to 3 and 84 prizes to the upper Form 4 and 5 classes,” he said.
Mutenheri also highlighted that trophies and medals were awarded to the college’s various sporting codes, including football, rugby, netball, basketball, swimming and athletics.
Named in honour of Botswana’s first academic institution, established by famous Missionary Dr David Livingstone in partnership with local Batswana in 1843, LKC has been built on the legacy of its namesake by combining the time-honoured strengths of Africa Cultural Values.
The college, through the University of Cambridge Local Examination Syndicate (UCLES), is internationally certified as an approved Oxford, Cambridge, and Royal Society of the Arts (OCR) examinations centre offering Cambridge examinations at the IGCSE and A Level.
