Waterstone College 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: Melissa Nagar 

The Hilton War Cry Committee sang ‘I thank God that my school sees another day’. Hearing the harmony of all Waterstonians singing this line gives me goosebumps and makes me look at Waterstone College with a heart filled with gratitude for being a Waterstonian. I am most grateful to the Lord for the people He has placed in my life. Through the memories created I can proudly call my team of leaders my school brothers and sisters. I have also been blessed to have teachers who really give their all to see us succeed and have become like a second set of parents to me. I have been able to see the incredible way in which God works and through the challenges of this year especially, I have learnt to fully trust in God. 

The greatest lesson I have learnt and advice that I can give to all future matriculants is simply, let God work through you! Proverbs 3:5-6 reads: ‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.’ This year had its fair share of challenges, but through God and the people He has placed in my life, I have been able to find resilience, motivation and encouragement in even the most difficult times. I will forever be grateful for the unity shown and memories made at each interhouse sports and cultural day, each sunset braai, each school camp, each spirit practice, and even the small moments of fun in each day. I thank God for every learner, teacher and management member who makes Waterstone College a united family. But mainly, I thank God for the privilege and honour I have had to serve this school. 


Head boy: Tlotliso Maleme 

I greet you all in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour, without whom my writing this would not be possible. I will forever be grateful for all the smiles and tears, the celebrations and struggles, the periods of fun and the stress; these all contributed to my growth at Waterstone College.  

It’s sad to think that I will soon be signing out of Waterstone College, but I will forever cherish the memories as well as the people who played a part in building them. I am blessed to have been given the opportunity to serve and give back to the school through leadership, spirit, and my various extramural activities. I will forever wave that Waterstone flag high. I thank You, Lord, for the wisdom and growth I have gained through high school. It is because of You I can smile as I reflect on the ups and downs of the past five years.
