Grade nine learners at Fezeka High School were thrown a lifeline regarding choosing the right subjects for their career options.

Conjunction Foundation, a non-profit-organisation hosted the careers and subject choice expo at the school on Tuesday.

Xolile Makutoana, the organisation’s managing director, said they realized that choosing subjects in grade nine is one of the most important and exciting decisions learners can make, shaping their futures.

He said the long-term purpose is to help learners to be aware of themselves, their capability and link subjects they choose according to their careers of choice.

“In order to support learners in their subject choice process, we want to paint what the future looks like, through perseverance and allowing them to dream again,” he said.

Lelethu Mshumpela, a 15-year-old learner said the expo has helped her with the right subjects as far as her career prospects are concerned.

“I want to be a lawyer because I want to fight for people’s rights, but I was not sure which subjects to choose ... Today I was helped, I now know what to do,” she said.

Another learner Seiso Kaibe,14, said he received the information he needed in the expo for his career path.

“I want to study Information Technology but choosing(the) right subjects was a problem, but now I know, hopefully, when I’m finished studying, I will design my own computer game,” said Kaibe.

Life orientation teacher Nolubabalo Xaso said the expo was very good for her learners because they know what they want to study and which subjects to choose so they don’t need to change again midway through.

University of Cape Town, False Bay TVET College, City Varsity, and Northlink College were some of the institutions that tool part.
