THE Executive Mayor of the Sarah Baartman District Municipality, Khunjuzwa Eunice Kekana, together with the Speaker of Council, Deon De Vos, handed over approximately 48 cheques of R5 000 each to top performing Grade 12’s of 2015.

“As the District Municipality, we realized that the majority of these top performing learners, one from each school in the District, come from a previously disadvantaged background and would need assistance in order to successfully enter tertiary education. We wanted to invest in the future of these promising learners,” says Kekana.

The ceremony was also attended by learners who are currently in Grade 12, as well as the school principals, educators, mayors of the respective local municipalities and councillors from the Sarah Baartman District Municipality. Kekana praised the dedication of the educators and encouraged them to keep up the good work.
