Mayoral Matric Excellence Awards

Congratulations to the 2014 Matric Class!!

 

Kagisano-Molopo Local Municipality in partnership with the Department of Education hosted the Mayoral Matric Excellence Awards on the 07 January 2015 at Huhudi High School. The Hon Mayor Kesenkamang Kekesi awarded the class of 2014 in the area of Kagisano-Molopo bursaries and trophies for their sterling performance.

 

In her speech the Mayor gave words of encouragement and emphasizing the Premier’s motto of “saam werk saam trek”. She said both teachers and learners worked together to obtain impressive results.

 

The North West Education MEC Wendy Matsemela says the province is proud to have retained the second position nationally after Gauteng. Through a number of interventions, including the “push” campaigns, the province was able to attain a 84.6% pass rate, second to a better resourced Gauteng province with a mere 0.01% difference. Though this is a slight decline from last year’s 87.2% with a small difference of 2.6% it is still a clear and satisfactory victory.

 

This year’s top ten students will be awarded bursaries from the Municipality and ABSA Bank. Absa presented the Mayor with a cheque of R25 000 towards the students registration in different higher learning institutions. The title of top student went to Thuso Moleme from Setswakgosing Secondary School in Kagisano-Molopo. In his brief speech he was tearful when he thanked his teachers and Mentor for standing by him and believing in him. He encouraged his fellow students to concentrate in their education and they will receive results of their hard work.
