It’s time to reward excellence in Maluti District- class of 2016

The Matatiele Local Municipality and the Maluti District Department of Education will on Friday the 20th of January 2017, host the class of 2016 matric awards ceremony. This in order to honour and congratulate learners who have achieved top marks in the last year’s matric examinations. Teachers and schools that perform exceptionally will also be appreciated.

In recognising the cream of the district, the Mayor of Matatiele Local Municipality, Cllr. Momelezi Mbedla will be accompanied by the Executive Committee, Madam Speaker and the Chief Whip. “Our work in education is directed by the National Development Plan (NDP), which envisages the achievement of a high quality school education with literacy and numeracy at globally competitive standards, to provide learners with the opportunity to reach their full potential, said Cllr Mbedla.

The Maluti District Education Department has commended stakeholders for the critical role and dedication displayed last year. Maluti District Director, Mr Lungelo Mthatyana says this proves beyond any doubt that education is indeed a societal matter. “Maluti district came 2nd in Cluster A. The graphs show an upward trend.
