Preparations for grade 12 examinations at KwaThintwa High School got a shot in the arm today when KwaZulu-Natal MEC for Finance, Mrs Belinda Scott, visited the school to encourage learners as they write their final exams.
MEC Scott urged learners to do their best so that they could get good results.
“This is your final year at this school. You must end this year on a high note. Work hard so that you will be rewarded handsomely.
“This is just the very beginning of your life. You have your whole life ahead of you. I know you can offer so much to KwaZulu-Natal and South Africa. You are the future,” said MEC Scott.
She continued that she would work with the Department of Education to get bursaries for learners who do well in their examinations. MEC Scott has adopted the school to make her contribution towards the development of the children. She donated 100 chairs, books and food packs for learners.
KwaThintwa High School teaches children with special needs, with the learners coming from all corners of the province. School Principal, Dr Mavis Naidoo, said she was encouraged by the support that MEC Scott is giving to the school.
She said the school had high expectations from the children.
“We do not put a ceiling on them. We have committed and dedicated staff who believe in our children. We ensure that this becomes a centre of excellence,” said Dr Naidoo.
