The class of 2014 at St Georges Grammar School in Mowbray, Cape Town, achieved a 100% matric pass rate and 90% of them managed to get a Bachelors Pass. This is remarkable, since the school caters for a large range of learners. Yes, academia is important, but there are also learners with special needs attending the school.

My son is a Georgian and I have been privileged to be allowed to take my camera behind the scenes.

I would like to share this short, visual tribute to a school that embraces diversity and excellence.

While the school is closely linked to the St Georges Cathedral in Cape Town, it embraces religious diversity. The school’s racial demography reflects that of the Western Cape and learners with special needs, including Down Syndrome, are integrated into the school.
