RUCHIRA Ghosh, regional director in South Asia for Cambridge International Examinations, talks about the value of teachers in our schools. Teachers are our leaders, they inspire and engage our children instilling in them not just knowledge, but also values and attitudes that can guide pupils for the rest of their lives. In reality the classroom is the foundation stone where our future society is laid. Great teachers inspire their pupils to discover more and to achieve more, not just in tests and examinations, but in life. Excellent examination results can be the fuel to power young minds to achieve further. Georgia Bown achieved an average of 94%, Ashleigh Mason and Riaan Swanepoel both achieved an average of 87%, Loune´ Lotter achieved an 83% average, Taylor Pore´e and Phumelele Mtshali achieved an 81% average. These results are outstanding. We celebrate and congratulate the teachers who shaped these pupils’ thoughts and ideas, guiding them on their learning journeys to discover and achieve.
