THE Greytown Child and Youth Centre has sent the following message to the nine matriculants from the centre who started writing their final exams last week: "Good luck with your exams.
The time has come to put childhood away and prepare for adulthood and adults stay focused. Focus­ on what you know. If you're unsure go to the next question. You'll come back later.

“Focus on getting marks. Don't waste time drawing pictures on your exam scripts. Sleep early. By 11pm you should be in bed. Don't take notes to the exam. Believe in yourself and just take a smile and a good joke in the morning. Remember that no one is dying ... it's just exams.
You've been writing tests and exams since Grade 1, you can do it one more time now. Know that we love you and we're here for you if you need anything. Good luck with your finals." - Ayanda Mabaso.
