A TOTAL of 75 awards were given to 32 Gamalakhe Commercial High pupils in Grade 10, 11 and 12.

The pupils earned certificates and trophies for achievements in various academic learning areas, and one trophy was given to a pupil who excelled in speech, language and poetry.

The awards ceremony was held at Margate Hotel last Wednesday, hosted by Iyachichima - a marketing-centric business founded by Phumelele Bohlela, daughter of late former school principal, Phillip Bohlela.

“What excites us is that we are applying learnings from previous Model C schools that worked and still work well for the profile of pupils in tertiary and other institutions and in job applications.

We are instilling that in township schools,” said Bohlela.

She said this is a start of a lifelong journey to encourage pupils in townships to strive for success.

Bohlela shared how her late father always strived for the best while serving the Department of Education for more than 30 years.

Linda Sibiya formerly from Ukhozi FM was guest speaker and spoke about the importance of being educated.

She also presented one of the biggest awards to Mthobisi Mbali in Grade 12 - the Dr Phillip Bohlela trophy - which will be passed to the next overall top achiever in the coming years.
