Meridian Rustenburg Matric 2022

You had a bear celebrity with a special bear identity, who helped you forget your worries and your strife. Matric is an important and often stressful year, but it’s also a time to make memories that will last a lifetime. 

Your school’s teddy shared in the experience! 


Let’s hear it from your head girl and boy 


Head girl: Rethabile Mosatupa 

Who would’ve thought that five years of high school would fly so fast? One moment you’re in Grade 8 and being inducted, and the next you are trying to find the perfect words to sum up your incredible journey. During my primary school years, I had always admired head girls and hoped that maybe one day I too would become one. My hopes became a reality and I couldn’t be happier. Sadly, I now have to hand over the reins and entrust the legacy to the next matric group. 

During my time at Meridian Rustenburg I learnt so many things about myself and about life in general. I witnessed a transformation of character within myself, going from shy and unnoticed to bold and daring. Before we got to high school we were always told how much of a roller-coaster the journey is, I for one believe that this roller-coaster ride equips us to deal with life’s obstacles. 

To the class of next year, the aim is not to triumph over each predicament but rather to ensure that when you don’t succeed you learn something from it. I’d like to wish you well and end off by sharing some of the most important things that matric has taught me: (1) the desire to succeed, (2) the beauty of consistency and (3) the art of surpassing your best. Above all else is the impeccable strength found in a unified group. 


Head boy: Isaac Kelehetswe 

Wow! How time flies, hey? It has really been 10 whole years since I first stepped foot on these school grounds that I have come to call home. At first, I was just an outsider looking in; just another face in the crowd. I felt so lonely, even though I was never really alone, but before I knew it I had found my home away from home. The many faces that have come and gone are all imprinted in my memories like old cassette tapes – spinning the film as I reminisce. 

So many different experiences all in one. If only I could stay a bit longer, but of course, all good things must come to an end. I will miss the sound of children rummaging through the corridors in the early mornings and the silence experienced when true learning begins in the classrooms.  

As I say goodbye, I have one message to the Class of 2023. Hold no grudges, rather you should have water under the bridge than fire within your soul. This is your time to shine, your story to tell and your legacy to leave behind, so do your old head boy a favour and do so with courage and pure excellence for we are Meridians – the sky is the limit!
