For the record

Pieter Janse van Rensburg, Principal Gardens Commercial High

The article “City’s 2016 matrics shine” (CapeTowner, January 12) refers. Two mistakes and I need that to be rectified:

The pass rate of Gardens Commercial did not increase by 7.8 percent.

It increased from 96.3 percent to 98.9 percent.

I did not say that the “hype” surrounding the release of the results was “unnecessary”.

I have said that we need to look at the bigger picture of the results, taking into consideration that the marks were increased in 32 subjects nationally.

CapeTowner apologies for the errors and any inconvenience caused – Editor, Chantel Erfort
