STATEMENT BY RAY NKONYENI MUNICIPALITY:
Her Worship the Mayor of RNM Cllr Nomusa Mqwebu would like to extend her whole-hearted congratulations and well-wishes to the Matriculants of 2019.
Their dedication and hard work has reaped benefits and put our district on the map by being the top-achieving district within the Province of KZN as we obtained 86.3%.
One is aware that the 2019 academic year was no walk in the park for grade 12 pupils and that they had it rough and by not giving up, they have proven that success is dependent on an effort you put.
This also goes to the educators, all departmental officials and even parents and guardians who worked tirelessly to ensure that the pupils achieve this success.
We are also very much proud of the continuous excellent achievement especially by Port Shepstone High School as the top achiever within the District comes from them; I also congratulate the other schools and mostly those between quintile 1 and 3 who have been consistent in achieving excellent results.
To those who unfortunately did not pass, I wish to let them know that this is not the end of the road for them and that they can rise above this. It is often said that the harder one falls, the stronger one rises. Never give up in life!
