PROTEC Tongaat hosted their annual awards day on Monday to celebrate the achievement of its pupils in their core subjects of mathemathics, physical science and English.

The PROTEC programme is a math, science and technology career development and enrichment programme that prepares young people with the interest and ability for successful entry into science, engineering and technological careers.

Branch manager Marion Takis thanked all the stakeholders, especially the donors, for their support, which has enabled PROTEC Tongaat to not only survive over the past 24 years, but also grow, extend and enrich their programmes.

“We hope that today you can feel how deeply grateful the [pupils] are for being given the opportunity to attend PROTEC. Thanks to your support our learners are given hope and the promise of a better future.”

Takis also congratulated pupils on their courage, determination and perseverance in overcoming the many challenges they face and urged the Grade 12 pupils to continue striving to be the best that they can be.

“Remember the road to success is seldom an easy or straight one so don’t let the fear of failure cripple you. When you fall, remember that ‘F’ stands for feedback, an opportunity to find your mistakes and fix them so that you can forge ahead and follow your dreams.”
