ANC BOKONE BOPHIRIMA CONGRATULATES THE MATRIC CLASS OF 2016
The African National Congress (ANC) in Bokone Bophirima congratulates the Provincial Department of Education and Sport Development on a sterling performance in the 2016 matric examinations.
Bokone Bophirima obtained 86.2% excluding progress learners, an increase of 9% from the 2015 Grade 12 pass rate. The province also scored 3 856 distinctions, an increase of 171 distinctions.
We congratulate in particular MEC for Education and Sport Development, Sello Lehari, who is also ANC Deputy Provincial Chairperson, for the high quality leadership that he continues to provide for the department and the entire education sector in the province.
ANC Provincial Chairperson Cde Supra Mahumapelo commended Ngaka Modiri Molema District for obtaining position one among the four districts of the province with 85,73% and Kgetleng Area Office for coming out tops with 90.66%, leading all the 18 Area Offices across Bokone Bophirima. Mahumapelo, who also leads the ANC Provincial Government, said the province will in February be announcing new additional measures as part of enhancing the quality of teaching and learning.
The ANC prides itself in that its government has put education as one of the top priorities in service delivery goals. We believe that the future of this country depends largely on quality education and we are happy to see the province of Bokone Bophirima taking that seriously.
It is initiatives such as the Last Push campaigns that the ANC government introduced towards and throughout the examinations period that help us achieve what we have committed ourselves to doing for our children.
The ANC acknowledges the hard work that our learners, teachers and School Governing Bodies have put in to ensure that our province does well and retains the good performance we have seen in the past few years. We also like to appreciate the invaluable support that teacher trade unions and parents continue to give to the schools and our learners.
Bokone Bophirima continues to show that being a rural province does not mean that we cannot shine like others by providing the quality education that our future leaders need.
We look forward to another year of success and wish the new Grade 12 learners well.
