Winter camps are underway for Grade 12 learners in the North West Department of Education as of Friday 07 July 2023.

A total of 32, 494 learners and 1,979 teachers in the province will be accommodated in 112 camps spread across the province housing both residential and day campers to assist learners in their problematic areas of learning such as Setswana Home Language and gateway subjects.

MEC for Education in the North West Viola Motsumi encourages learners to give their best throughout the study camps as stakes are high for reaching the top three spot on yearend results.

“As camps officially open today, I wish to encourage all our Grade 12 learners to take these camps as a stepping stone towards their future. Our learners have invested 13 years of their schooling and it is time to yield positive outcomes out of it such as the top three spot for the class of 2023. To my learners, it will take your discipline, your seriousness, attention and dedication to make it. Our camps will be protected and have backup generators in times of loadshedding and therefore I urge parents to release learners for this precious time to engage in camps. This is the start for our learners to chart a positive path for their future.
“Our esteemed teachers and subject advisors sacrificed so much of their time to make these camps a success and I am grateful for that, Motsumi expressed.

Winter camps are a mid-year revision programme that looks into assisting learners to intensify positive year-end results.

Camps will run until Saturday, 15 July 2023.
