Learners who worked hard were awarded with certificates at the end of the Grade 12 Autumn Camps held by the North West Department of Education across the province from 25 March to 02 April 2023.

In the efforts of improving the matric performance the department held intervention camps with the Grade 12 learners. The primary objective is to assist those subjects and schools which have not done well since the beginning of the year.

On the arrival of learners in the different camps they were subjected to write a Pre-test to assess their challenges in different subjects. The teachers would treat problematic areas observed from the test.

The MEC for Education, Viola Motsumi emphasized that the province intervenes immediately at the beginning of the year to help the Class of 2023.

“As a department we are serious on the issue of improving the results. We want to see our province improving from position five to position one at the end of the year. I told all principals and teachers that this year should be business unusual, we should make the North West community proud with our results.

“I am very much happy to see best performing learners and schools receiving certificates at the end of the camps. The performance of the learners shows a great improvement in the post test unlike when they arrived at the camps”, said MEC Motsumi.

MEC Motsumi emphasized that schools should work on the gaps identified at the camps.

Principals of the different schools were present during the awarding ceremony to congratulate learners on good performance.
