14 Nov 2019 Honours Evening
Honours Evening at Uplands is always such a special occasion – definitely one of the highlights on the year’s calendar. As a school we celebrate the top academic Matric pupils, as well as identifying pupils who have excelled in different facets of school life.
We are very proud of our Dux scholar, Liam Brain, who delivered an inspirational and honest account of what he believes it takes to achieve outstanding results, no matter your passion or the area you choose. Lebogang Mashigo, the Head girl of 2019 who has exemplified what we believe to be the attitude, character and excellence we wish for all our pupils, was awarded both the Founders Award as well as The Best All-round Sportswoman.
Other noteworthy awards were presented to Carolina Fernandes for her excellence in visual arts within and outside of academic parameters, as well as a second award for performance art. Good Fellowship was awarded to Onkgopotse Aphane and Buhle Mashabane. Vaughn van Reenen was awarded top Sportsman and Katherine Prior top Sportswoman.
While it is always well received to be identified as top in a sphere or field, the Honours ceremony at Uplands also celebrates endeavour, as well as the most improved players in each sport throughout the year.
