Pule Langa’s high school career ended on a high note, with him earning seven distinctions in the 2023 final exams. He missed out by just one percent in his ninth subject. He has been an academic over-achiever throughout his time at Jeppe and won one of the top prizes at the Grade 12 awards evening late last year – the HF Schoon Trophy for Bilinguism, for his performance in Afrikaans and English, both of which he got distinctions in at the end of the year.
He was a Theo Jackson Scholarship Fund boy and he is very grateful for the support he received. “I was given the opportunity to attend a school like Jeppe, and I got plenty of help and encouragement by the Fund, particularly from my tutor, Mr Shai,” he said.
