The North West Department of Education is pleased to welcome teachers and learners from the winter break.

Schools were on a deserved winter break while matriculants carried on with winter camps to close content gaps from the past quarter.

MEC for Education in the North West, Mmaphefo Matsemela is thankful to parents for keeping learners safe during the winter break and calls on them to release learners to school.

“I wish to extend my thanks to parents for keeping our learners safe during the winter holidays. Now that that holidays are over, I wish to see learners back in class and administer lessons for the third quarter. We are ready to carry on with the curriculum. To our learners, we hope you are coming back revived and rejuvenated,” said Matsemela.

Departmental officials will be monitoring the first day of schooling tomorrow in various schools.
MEC Matsemela will be monitoring schools as follows:

School: Gabonewe Secondary School, Madikwe Village (Moses Kotane, in Bojanala district)
Time: 07:30
