St Stithians College recently congratulated several boys who participated in external music examinations, which took place earlier this year, but the school gave recognition to the boys who took the examinations on 14 September.
These were conducted by visiting examiners from international boards (in the case of practical examinations) or sent overseas for marking (in the case of theory papers).
The exams were taken with the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, Trinity College London and Rockschool, all based in the United Kingdom and the exams are graded according to difficulty and technical demands and the qualifications are recognised worldwide.
The following learners were recognised for their achievements:
- Luca de Barros – Trinity Grade 3 theory with merit
- Sabelo Ntshingila – Trinity Grade 5 theory
- Jarred Loggenberg – Trinity Grade 5 theory with merit
