Schools are re-opening for the second quarter from 02 April 2019 consisting of 51 actual school days.
This is a critical term since schools will be expected to work hard towards curriculum coverage, finalization of assessment tasks, and preparations for the half-yearly examination.
The MEC for Education, Mr. Sibusiso Malaza will on Tuesday, 02 April 2019 visit Kwazamokuhle Secondary School in Hendrina under the Steve Tshwete Local Municipality at 07H00.
The objective of the school visit is to welcome the teachers, learners and non-teaching staff back from the well-deserved school holidays.
Kwazamukuhle Secondary School is amongst the well performing schools in the province. The school grade 12 results in the last five years are as follows:
In 2014, it obtained 84.2%
In 2015, 78.9%
In 2016, 80.5%
In 2017, 90.2% and
In 2018, 83.5%.
MEC Malaza will also use his visit to congratulate the school, teachers and learners and request them to work harder to achieve qualitative improvement this year as well.
After addressing learners and teachers, MEC Malaza will together with parents and members of the community embark on the cleaning campaign of the surroundings of the school.
This will be part of the Rhandza Xikolo Xa Wena Campaign (Tsonga for Love Your School) and is in keeping with President Ramaphosa’s injunction that communities need to be mobilized to keep the country clean.
“The Good Green Deeds programme is aimed at changing behavior towards littering, towards illegal dumping, and towards waste in general.
It is part of our call and our commitment to clean South Africa, to make our cities, towns and rural areas, places where it is safe and healthy for all to live.
Because of environmentally insensitive human action, the forces of nature conspired to set in motion the dramatic process of climate change.
It is by conscious human action that its effects can and will be mitigated and ultimately reversed” – President Cyril Ramaphosa.
