DESPITE difficulties and a lack of resources, two rural schools in Bulwer and Himeville brought hope to teachers and the community after scoring 100% in last year’s matric results.

Politicians have vowed to support the schools that did not perform well.

Last Friday, political leaders and government officials from Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma Municipality attended an awards ceremony for matriculants who got good results last year. Mandadla High School from Sandenezwe in Ward 15 got 100%, a big improvement from the 50% it received in 2016. Ngonyama High in Jombokazi village in Ward 10, and Faithway High in Himeville, also received 100%.

NDZ Municipality deputy mayor Philani Shange congratulated the three schools and commended the teachers for their hard work.

“What inspires the most is that the three schools are from deep rural villages and this shows that people are taking education seriously. Success of the schools comes after the hard work of teachers, community members and all other stakeholders,” said Shange. He said out of 28 high schools in NDZ, 20 achieved above 50%.
At the event, three pupils were given full bursaries to further their studies and eight were given R10 000 for registration at tertiary institutions.
