THE speaker of the Matatiele Local Municipality, Nomasomi Mshuqwana, has encouraged matric pupils to put more effort into preparing for their final exams in order to make their parents proud.

Last week, she visited local schools and called for pupils to study hard for the Department of Education Alfred Nzo West District to reach above the target of a 75% matric pass rate.

Mshuqwana planted trees at Tholang Senior Secondary School as part of the Greening Matatiele Campaign and offered best wishes to all the pupils who will be writing exams.

She was supported by local councillors and Department of Education officials.

“We are responding to the call made by the president of the country, Cyril Ramaphosa, for all leaders to join hands and fix problems witnessed in our country.

“Matrics need to work hard to brighten their future and make their parents proud,” she said, calling on families and communities to support matrics and offer all the necessary help needed for them to excel in the examinations.

Pupils from Mount Hargreaves High School have promised to do their best in order to pass. In 2017, the district matric pass rate achieved was 67,3%.
