AT a three-day career exhibition at rural school Mkhatshana Junior Secondary School in Umzimkhulu, pupils were told to focus on their books to prepare mid-year and end-year exams.
The exhibition started on Wednesday and ends today.

The main speaker, Malibongwe Hlophe encouraged pupils to study hard and pass with “flying colours” at the end of the year and encouraged them to follow the footsteps of successful people to achieve their goals.

On Wednesday it was the turn of Grade 9 pupils from six schools who attended, accompanied by teachers and parents.

The career expo organiser, Philani Dlamini said the Wednesday event was designed to help Grade 9 pupils understand what career opportunities are available.
“The Thursday event was for Grade 11 and Grade 12 pupils, assisted by tertiary institutions, on how to apply for bursaries at tertiary institutions.

“Rural pupils get confused when making a career choice at university and as a result some choose the wrong careers and drop out of school,” said Dlamini.

Government departments at the career expo included Environmental Affairs Department, Human Settlements, SAPS, teachers, private companies, universities and Further Education and Training colleges.

Today, unemployed graduates and unemployed young people will be advised about how to apply for jobs and draw up a curriculum vitae correctly.
Deputy Minister of Tourism Elizabeth Thabethe is the main speaker.
