2018 matric awards ceremony

As one of the key stakeholders of education in Umzimkhulu, over the years we have taken upon us the responsibility to recognise those who did well in the previous year’s matric results. We are now at the advanced stage with the preparations to host this prestigious gathering. In the hosting of this event, we have partnering with the Department of Education and other key stakeholders.

War rooms

We would like to take this opportunity to applaud the leadership of the war rooms in Umzimkhulu for their undying commitment towards changing the lives of our communities. Through the integrated approach, prescribed in the principles of Operation Sukuma Sakhe, we have since fruitfully intervened in numerous cases with a huge room for improvement. It is also on that note that we would like to encourage any stakeholder to visit our war rooms from time to time although we have arrangement whereby ward committees and co-ordinators are the cascaders of information. It is with fruitful war-room participation that interventions will be dealt with long in advance.

Disaster management

Since the weather is becoming more unpredictable, we would like to urge our communities to implement consistently the disaster management plan as per the awareness campaigns conducted by our teams. In this forever and drastically changing weather conditions we also would like to appeal to our communities not to stay in old buildings in case they fall.

For any disaster related queries, we would like you to call the emergency numbers: 076 808 2697, 076 808 7882 or our communications unit at 076 401 5728.

Till we meet again.
