2013-01-15 00:00

THE Protec Pietermaritzburg school has produced its best matric results in 24 years, according to executive director Rose Smuts.

“As a class they were a wonderful group who worked incredibly hard, and displayed 100% commitment to both Saturday and vacation school sessions throughout the three years they were with us.

“They richly deserve these wonderful rewards,” Smuts said.

Protec is a non-profit company founded in the 1989 in response to a dire need for quality in maths and physical science education in grades 9 to 12 in disadvantaged communities and under-resourced schools.

Protec registered 38 Grade 12 pupils and another three from other schools.

The school achieved 75 distinctions.

“We congratulate all of our students for attaining these amazing results and wish them everything of the very best for the future,” said Smuts.

“In addition, we pay tribute to our Protec PMB tutors, who worked tirelessly to motivate these students and to provide them with the very best learning experience possible.”

Smuts also thanked the donors, many of whom have supported Protec PMB for many years.

“Without their financial support, we wouldn’t exist,” she said.
