Last year 21 scholars in grade 8 & 11 wrote the exams for the German Language Certificate I & II (DSD I & II). We are very proud of our learners, almost all of whom passed. We are especially happy about our DSD II candidates, 6 of 7 passed at C1 level, the highest possible pass!
And a special mention goes to Mika Kreuzer and Josia vom Orde, the best of each year, who passed with 92 and 93 out of 96 points respectively. Well done!
We had a small ceremony to hand out the certificates and to express our admiration for the effort put into the German classes by our learners and their parents. Every Monday evening High School students (mostly DSD alumni) gather at the DSD to continue German SAL as an extra subject up to matric.
The German Language Certificate is an official proof of German language proficiency, is organised and recognised by the Federal Republic of Germany and is extremely valuable for our learners for future studies, scholarship and job applications in a German speaking country as well as in South Africa.
