SANELE Ndlovu (20), who repeated Grade 11 due to his poor performance in maths, has been offered a bursary by the Denel Aviation to undergo an intensive course to become a commercial

Ndlovu could not finish his Bachelor of
Science degree last year at the University of
Witwatersrand due to financial constraints - his single mother, Zanele, could not afford to pay the fees on her domestic worker wages.

However, through perseverance he was able to secure a bursary.

According the deputy principal of his former school, Gobindlovu Comprehensive High, Bafana Mthembu, Ndlovu was a shy, humble, driven,
diligent and dedicated pupil who was good in most of his subjects.

Ndlovu matriculated in 2015 at Gobindlovu Comprehensive High in the Mafunze area in Elandskop.

He achieved A in maths, B in physical sciences, geography, life sciences and life orientation and C in English and Zulu in matric.

In his spare time Ndlovu helps seven matric pupils from Mafunze with maths.

“Failing is not the end of the world, but a stepping stone at achieving your goals by working hard,” said Ndlovu.

Ndlovu started his training on Monday June 19 in Port Elizabeth where he’ll be based for the duration of the course.
