Clarification on Nomaswazi advertorial

2018-01-17 06:02

ECHO has been asked to clarify information published in an advertorial feature on Nomaswazi High School, which appeared in the November 30, 2017 edition.

In the feature, the school said it was the “only independent inner-city school accredited by Umalusi to offer a post-matric repeater programme.”

While Nomaswazi High School is a Pietermaritzburg independent inner-city school with an accreditation by Umalusi that is also offering a post-matric repeater programme, this post-matric repeater programme itself is not covered by the Umalusi accreditation as Umalusi does not accredit institutions to offer post-matric repeater programmes.

The accreditation mentioned applies to Nomaswazi High School at 100 Church Street.

The school said there was no intent to misrepresent Umalusi as a quality council and they regret the error.
