Learners at Somerset College are celebrating a number of recent achievements.

On the academic front Somerset College announced the 2020 Dux Scholars at their Valedictory celebration. Top honours went to Jonathan van Druten who was named Dux Scholar for 2020 and Clara Smit, the Cambridge Dux Scholar 2020, who won these accolades.

On the sports field, three Somerset College matric hockey players, Stephanie Bihl, Michaella Beart, and Josh van Cuyck, would have received their 100 caps this season but due to Covid-19, this was not the case.

However, these three players deserved to be acknowledged for this achievement and therefore had their surnames added to their shirts which is the accolade a player gets when they receive their 100 caps.


Hockey stars Michaella Beart, Josh van Cuyck and Stephanie Bihl.

 Stephanie, Michaella, and Josh made valuable contributions to Somerset College Hockey.
