AS matrics throughout the country prepare themselves for the culmination of 12 years’ schooling with the start of the 2016 examinations, they are receiving encouragement and support from all.

A special examination prayer session was held in the Enhlalakahle Community Hall on Sunday and was well attended by matrics and the community.

The emphasis was to remind pupils that "hard work comes from belief and the importance of education for each and everyone's future”.

One of the speakers, Ward Councillor Vukaniu Sibisi emphasised that the youth are the future and it is important for them to resist temptations and concentrate on hard work - "sweat and tears"- to ensure a bright future, and wished pupils good luck.

The Greytown Gazette, on behalf of its readers, also wishes every matriculant the best of luck - remember, as long as you work to the full extent of your capabilities, you will succeed.

Good luck to every matriculant. - Nomthandazo Prudence Jiyane.
