NAPDI programme to resume this Saturday

2017-08-02 06:02

THE Second Chance Matric Programme of the Northern Areas People Development Initiative (NAPDI) will resume with registration at Hillside High School on Saturday .

Coordinator of the programme and NAPDI chairman Isaac Metembo said that the board of trustees of NAPDI was excited that the programme would continue to give adults and youth another opportunity to get the important matric qualification.

“We are very proud of this programme that has helped so many breadwinners since 2011 to get matric and so improve their chances at finding permanent employment, as well as making it possible for a few to enrol at university,” said Metembo.

“More than 300 adults attending the NAPDI Tuition Programme sat for the recently completed Extended Matric Certificate Examination, offered annually by the Education Department at no cost.

“We are confident many of them will pass and return to complete their last three subjects while others will complete and receive their certificates later in the year.”

Prospective students must report to Hillside High School on Saturday at 7:30am for a full briefing. – REPORTER
