THE management, staff and pupils of King Edward High School would like to commend the Matatiele­ Municipality as there has been a marked improvement in the upkeep of the municipal pool and major infrastructural improvements.

We now have a public facility to make us proud. Furthermore, we are grateful to the municipality for their generosity in the matric awards ceremony - it certainly motivates our pupils and staff to perform even better.
