INSIKAYOLWAZI Community Resource Centre once again partnered with Idwala Carbonates and the Department of Education in its 10-day, winter school classes for matriculants.

The aim of these classes is to ensure they are on track in maths and physical science for their final year-end exams.

Bheki Khoza of Insikayolwazi said this is the third year this programme has been running and they are very grateful for the partnership they have with schools, Idwala, the Department of Education and pupils.

In total 144 pupils participated.

“This year we had matriculants from Ingwemabala, Nkonka, Sister Joans, Mgudlwa and Mthusi high schools taking part in the programme.

“We also had eight teachers, well equipped and qualified to teach maths and science at matric level,” said Khoza.

He said this year’s programme involved principals who promised to continue the relationship with Insikayolwazi­ even after the programme had finished.

“After the completion of the programme, as Insikayolwazi, we will visit schools to assist and work on pupils­ encouraging them to focus until their final exams,” he said.

Glen Koster from Idwala Carbonates said pupils should concentrate on their studies to ensure they get good marks, because Idwala offers bursaries for those who perform well in matric.

“We often have bursaries available at the beginning of each year for pupils who have performed well in maths and physical science in matric, therefore we encourage them to work hard and they might be lucky to be the beneficiary of an Idwala bursary.”

Koster urged businesses to become part of the programme as Idwala­ is the only sponsor at this stage.

“We call upon other business to be sponsors of this programme in order for it to continue and be successful in the coming years,” he said.

Teacher Wonderboy Nxumalo encouraged pupils to form study groups so they can revise together during the programme.
