I personally feel one of my biggest achievements this year was becoming deputy head girl. I feel honoured to be given this great opportunity. I would love to become an inspiration in the eyes of others. I believe in the power of inspiring others before I expire.

Before the year ends I want the youth of our country to be more politically involved and to be more active when airing their voices during this year of the general election. I have achieved an important position in encouraging the youth by becoming involved in the children’s parliament.

Kenambara Bernice

Through the year I’ve been working on a better attitude. I managed to change the way I think and see things, and yes, it helped me have a better attitude towards my acquaintances. I want to instil two crucial characteristics, which are integrity and courage, in others.

Fabiola Beukes

What I have achieved through this year was pretty amazing. I received first place overall at the annual Miss Jan Möhr beauty pageant. I am so thankful, because I will never forget the experience. What I want to achieve at the end of the year is to be able to donate food parcels to various homes. Seeing a smile on another’s face is enough for me.

Believe-Me Mukulu

This year has been quite hectic, yet I managed to achieve certain goals that I really wanted. One of them was me taking part in the Miss Jan Möhr beauty pageant and being on the student representative council, as I am now an example and role model to many.

Omega Tjirimuje

The highlight for me this year was becoming a member of the student representative council, a blood donor and being nominated among the top ten achievers at our school. I would like to end off my year by bringing peace, discipline and order to my school and country.

Carmen Ndjoonduezu

I feel I did not achieve much this year, but my willpower and determination is still strong, and I will never give up. I would love to continue what I have started, because they say: Where there is a will, there is a way.

Gobnet Mbai

I didn’t really achieve anything, but I still have a month and a weeks left to do what I wanted to. I want to do my level best in my academics and hopefully be one of the top achievers next year and make my teachers proud.

Owen Loxton

I am working towards getting good grades during this semester, in order for me to achieve my targets. I would like to end off the year with a bang, by joining the media centre at my school. Being a part of it will be a stepping stone to greater things.

Altons Namaseb

Being my first year in high school, I would like to pass my grade. Throughout the year, I have been attending afternoon classes to improve my marks. In the beginning it was not easy for me, but my teachers and parents saw something in me and that kept me going.

Noel van Wyk

This year I became a good listener and advice giver. I want to achieve my full potential, as well as greatness, and by that I mean simply avoiding past mistakes and building myself from them. I became a motivational speaker and a life coach for my peers.

Aiday Adams

My highlights for the year were becoming a class captain and a good leader and person. I want to build myself up to be better and I am a fan of gadgets, so at the end of the year, I want an iPhone.
