St John’s College boys awarded scholarships
St John’s College boys are provided with every opportunity to thrive and excel, and as such it is little surprise when year after year, boys are awarded top scholarships. The bursaries vary from academic to sporting, and include study in both South Africa and abroad.
The Class of 2016 was the single most represented boys school in the IEB list of Outstanding and Commendable Achievements for the matric exams. That achievement is testament to the work put in by the boys and their teachers.
Among the boys who received scholarship offers are:
Kwenzie Selamolela received the Allan Gray Orbis Foundation Scholarship, and is studying Philosophy, Politics and Economics at the University of Cape Town.
Sango Socikwa received the Allan Gray Fellowship Scholarship, and is studying Business Science, specializing in Actuarial Science at the University of Cape Town.
Brandon MacKenzie is currently considering scholarship offers, including an Allan Gray Scholarship.
Quintus Kilbourn and Dutliff Boshoff head to City University Hong Kong, where they join St John’s boys from previous years. Quintus has been awarded the top scholarship at the prestigious university and Dutliff has the second scholarship.
Michael Copeland will be hoping to serve up a storm with his partial tennis scholarship at the University of Carolina.
The rest of the boys from the gifted class of 2016 are spreading out around South Africa, joining scores of former St John’s boys at campuses including Wits, Stellenbosch, Rhodes University and the University of Pretoria. Others will travel abroad.
The single theme that runs across all these journeys is one of boys who have had a solid foundation and years of focused academic work, equipping the boys to succeed academically, wherever they choose.
