Lebogang Makola, is walking tall after receiving five awards as the top achiever at the Tlama Tlama Primary School in Tembisa during the award ceremony held on Tuesday morning.

The 10-year-old Grade 5 learner scooped awards in Social Science, Natural Sciences & Technology, Mathematics, Life Skills and English.

“I am proud to be a learner at my school, I love to keep it clean and make sure that we behave properly,” Lebogang said. “I want to be a pilot when I grow up.”

Gauteng Education MEC, Panyaza Lesufi, a former learner at the school, graced the occasion.

“This school made me who I am today,” Lesufi said. “We want these children to become pilots and fly new aeroplanes and be at the forefront of creating new phones. There will never be mkhukhu (shacks) here, whatever the school wants; the Department knows that they will get it.”

Lesufi burst with pride, showering the learners, teachers and parents with praise.

“Thank you to all the parents who came because it’s evident that there is no education without parents,” he said.

“I am also happy to be associated with the school’s principle Mr Dire because he takes his work seriously. A principal who comes to school in shorts and flip flops is not serious.”

Lebogang’s sister, Boiketlo, was excited about her little brother’s achievements saying he is the smartest member of their family.

It is evident that Tlama Tlama Primary School learners have a bright future and that Lebogang is a great role model to his peers and children across the country.
