EDUCATION remains one the most powerful mechanisms for getting people productively involved in the economy.

However, access to education is limited by such factors as finance, location, lack of facilities, and family challenges. The presence of Masharps College in Kranskop is an attempt to address some of these systemic challenges. With its affordable fee structure, central location and a number of free classes to the community, Masharps College has made a significant contribution towards changing the lives and fortunes of the youth in KZN.

The recent graduation ceremony at its Kranskop campus on 19 August bears testimony to this.

With August being Women’s Month it was gratifying to see that 91% of graduating students were women. We also congratulate Miss Anele Xulu, who walked away with the best student award.

The challenges faced by our youth and women are many and complex but topping the list are unemployment and lack of skills. Despite all these challenges, our youth and women, especially those in rural and peri-urban areas, are determined to acquire critical skills through accredited institutions such as Masharps College which offers internationally-recognised qualifications.

Delivering the keynote address at the graduation ceremony, Mr R. Maharaj, Kranskop Combined Primary School principal, provided advice to pupils and parents.

Key in his message was that success does not come easy and that pupils should not be deterred by temporary failure in their lives.

He cited former president Nelson Mandela’s famous words: “If you have a dream, nothing will hinder you to fulfill it unless you give up.”

He further emphasised that through hard work, success is inevitable.

It therefore goes without saying that pupils, who recently completed their studies, have taken their first step towards achieving their goals. We wish them everything of the best in their future endeavours.

- F.N. Masikane, Headmaster, Masharps College.
