THERE were celebrations and joy as matrics wrote their final paper on Monday this week.

Following the two-and-a-half hour paper, pupils shared happiness, hugs and laughter. Some even destroyed their school uniforms, saying they will be looking towards the announcement of results early next year.

Some pupils said 2018 was challenging and demanded lots of their time, but in the end, they managed to cope.

When the Fever visited Kokstad schools, Alungile Sishiqi from Shayamoya Secondary School said she would be taking a tour to Durban until the matric results are finally announced by the Department of Education. She said 2018 was a good year.

“I didn’t find any difficulty during exams,” said Sishiqi.

Another matric pupil, Baxolele Zweni said: “Mathematics was a bit difficult compared to other subjects.”

Matrics from Mount Currie Secondary said they will be looking for work during the December holidays to save money that can assist them with tertiary education in January.

SAPS spokesperson Captain Dumisani Ncongo said police have been monitoring schools during the exams and no incidents were reported.

“We congratulate matrics for writing their exams and we want them to refrain from unruly behaviour during the festive season.

When they partake in their celebrations, there should be order and harmony,” he said.
