HARRY Gwala district matrics are being assisted in getting application forms to further their studies in tertiary institutions from the newly established NPO - Simama Centre for Career and Professional Development.
This week the organisation distributed the forms at Engwaqa Senior Secondary in Umzimkhulu.

The founder of the NPO, Nokhuthala Dlamini, said universities have until the end September to accept early application forms. “I want pupils to take this opportunity to apply so they will not have to stand in queues to get application forms next year,” said Dlamini.
Next month pupils will write trials and in October they will write their finals. Dlamini’s aims to distribute application forms to 10 732 matrics in the district and has distributed forms to 5 000 pupils.

She said universities are far from Harry Gwala so matrics battle to get application forms.
“I started this organisation to make sure that pupils apply on time at tertiary institutions. In the past many young people were turned away from them because of late applications.”

Last week, she distributed department of health bursary forms to Carl Macomess High, Kokstad College, Mount Currie High and Shayamoya Secondary matrics.

Her wish is to have computers that matrics can use to apply online.
