Grade 12 students

Meet Gordon secondary’s Gr 12 science dux

Parents, guardians, friends and relatives in Port Moresby turned up to witness the closing of a chapter in their loved one’s life.

281 outgoing Grade 12 students received their attainment certificates today at the Gordon Secondary School hall.

Wearing their white and maroon uniforms for the last time, students from the seven Grade 12 classes walked up to receive their certificates in front of proud family members.

Among them was Grace Mageo, who was awarded dux of the Grade 12 science students.

Over 11,000 Gr 12 students selected

This figure indicates a slight increase in the number of students entering higher learning institutions after Grade 12 examinations.

A total of 25,000 students sat for the 2017 Grade 12 National Examinations.

47 percent have successfully secured spots in colleges and universities.

This is an increase of about a thousand students compared to the last Grade 12 national selections in 2016.
