A KWAMCANE High pupil has risen above numerous challenges and done extremely well in her examinations.

Precious Mncwabe matriculated from Kwamcane High in Elandskop with six distinctions from seven subjects.

Precious lives in the Elands­kop area and comes from a disadvantaged family of a single mother and eight siblings.

Precious said her family relies on government grants to get by. This is what motivated her to do so well in matric. One day she wishes to help her mother to support the family.

Precious wants to pursue a Bachelor of Commerce in accounting as she has always had a liking for numbers­.

“I want to be an accountant so I can help people manage their money,” she said.

Precious’s former teacher, Busi Mncwabe, said she is very proud of her pupil.

Precious’s advice to the matric Class of 2017 is that they should work hard and always do their best.

“Education is very important as it opens a lot of doors. Pupils must be grateful for having the opportunity of getting an education,” she said.
