The bodies of the girls were discovered in Dobsonville last week.
During the funeral service, Moganetsi's grandfather, Reuben Williams, said the family were expecting a good pass rate from her this year.
"We didn't expect to bury Thandeka this year."
The Occult Related Crimes Unit is investigating the double murder after razor blades and burnt black candles were found at the scene.
One of the girls allegedly told her friends she would be accepted into a satanic group if she sacrificed the life of someone close to her.
