Lilyfontein FET Phase is a hive of activity with each grade (10 - 12) assigned certain duties to fulfill and functions to organise. Our learners are given as many opportunities possible, to develop not only life skills, but also leadership skills.
Activities other than sport include Interact, blood-drive, matric dance co-ordinating, tuck-shop duties, assembly duty etc. We also have a strong bond with Gonubie Rotary. We have hosted and have sent a number of learners on exchange since 2010. They had tremendous fun and this experience certainly enriched their lives.
Subjects from Grade 10
- Life orientation
- Mathematics or Maths Literacy
- Physical Science OR Geography OR Business Studies
- Life Sciences OR Computer Applications Technology OR Hospitality
- Accountancy OR Tourism OR Engineering Graphics Design (EGD)
- Geography (optional 8th subject after school)
Since 2001 Lilyfontein has also made its mark as one of the leading academic schools in East London. We were able to maintain the 100% pass rate set by our 2008 Grade 12’s and each year brought its own highlights. Grant Swan achieved 7 distictions in the 2008 Matric finals, Maxine Diemer was the top achiever in the Border region in the 2009 finals and in 2010 Peter Morrissey achieved 8 distictions. A number of learners achieved A and B symbols in the various learning areas and we are extremely proud of this achievement. In 2015 we maintained our 100% pass rate with not one single subject failure. Sebastian Schultz achieved eight distinctions and Sumari Roets five. In 2016 Courtney Crew achieved 7 distinctions and won NNMU Vice Chancellors Bursary. She will be going on to study BCom Accounting Sciences: Business Management and Economics. Other academic successes were Georgina Fiorentinos with 5 distinctions (plus a distinction in Advanced Maths) and Emma Cumings, Simone Harnden, Kenia Jordaan, Abigail Labuschagne and Kellan Lehy each with four distinctions.
These results are a clear indication of how hard our learners and staff in the FET phase work.
Learner effort is recognised throughout the year through our Colours Award, Lynx Performance Award System and our annual Prize Giving.
With the tone set, our current learners in the FET phase can only go from strength to strength and grow not only physically and intellectually but also socially and spiritually.
