JULY TO AUGUST is a time which is known nationwide to encourage learners to start applying for tertiary education.

To the John Taolo Gaetsewe (JTGDT) Developmental Trust, this is inspired by the immense investment towards education in the John Taolo Gaetsewe (JGT) District.

This is done under the Human Resource Development Foundation (HRDF).

The JTGDT believes that the importance of education lies in its ability to unlock closed doors, sometimes even create some that never existed before.

Thus on Sunday, 22 August, the JTG Developmental Trust made an effort to visit the Bothitong High School to motivate and offer prayers to the matric class of 2015 to achieve a 100% pass rate in their year-end examinations.

The trust furthermore outlined available opportunities and bursaries to the matric class to start preparing themselves for 2016 and to apply in time.

Commenting on the visit to the high school, the CEO of the JTGDT, Tumelo Mpolokeng, highlighted that they would continue planting trees of knowledge in learners.

“We understand the dynamics that our learners find themselves in, and today we offered words of wisdom to achieve the 100% pass rate that the class of 2012 had,” he concluded.

Speaking on behalf of the high school, the principal, Jerry Mahura, said: “We are thankful for such institutions as the JTGDT for seeing the potential in our learners.

“With the encouragement and prayers received by learners today, we are hopeful that we will make this region proud.

“My learners have shown determination and they want to contribute immensely to the economic growth of this region with the different careers they want to venture into,” he said.

“A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination. But when you add to that a literate tongue or pen, then you have something very special, Nelson Mandela once said,” Mahura concluded
