BETHLEHEM. – Scores of matriculants marched through various streets in Bethlehem on Friday morning (15/04) en route to the show grounds to attend the career exhibition expo presented by the Youth Development Office in conjunction with the office of the executive mayor.

Various stall holders awaited their arrival at the show grounds, where information regarding careers was going to be shared with them.

Among the exhibitors were the Department of Health, South African National Parks and the Department of Education.

“We had a tremendous turn-out, except for those schools which could not attend due to unforeseen circumstances,” says Vusi Dlamini, Dihlabeng youth development Officer.

Dlamini says the municipality is focusing on supporting education and encourages the youth to take it seriously.

This expo comes right on the heels of another successful project, the Mayoral Bursary Programme Graduation Celebration, which was spearheaded by the office of the executive mayor.

It boasted a large number of graduates who were assisted by the municipality in attaining their degrees in various fields.

“The fact that the Dihlabeng Municipality came number one in the province does not come as a surprise, but as an indication that education is prioritised and taken seriously,” he said

Dhamini said the next project is the Mayoral School Choir Competition, which is to take place on 28 April.
