The North West Department of Education wishes to congratulate Judith Motsusi a Grade R teacher from Mafikeng Primary School, who won the 2022 SHERO award at a ceremony held in Houghton Hotel, Johannesburg on Wednesday, 05 October 2022.

Motsusi was nominated into the competition by a learner she taught in 2021. All participants were entered online directly to the National Department of Basic Education.

Judith Motsusi appreciated the award and expressed that it will motivate her to work harder.

“I am extremely excited for winning this award. I was not aware that my learner has entered my name and today I am a national winner. I am truly grateful for this learner to recognise my efforts and push my name to the national stage. This award will propel my work to benefit more learners”, said Motsusi.

The MEC for Education, Mmaphefo Matsemela indicated that this is a motivation to all teachers in the province.

“As a department we are truly excited about this achievement. Teacher Motsusi is a typical example of hard working teachers of this province. Again, this award came on the day we celebrated the International World Teachers Day. Teachers are transformers of our societies and we will continue to honour and appreciate them”, alluded MEC Matsemela.

This is a Woolworth’s initiative to appreciate and acknowledge teachers on the work they do.

Woolworths customers and the public nominate a teacher who makes a difference in their lives.

Motsusi walked away with a laptop, R1000.00 voucher from Woolworths and a R5000 voucher for her school.
