By Safiyia Stanfley, MPL, DA Provincial Spokesperson on Education in the Northern Cape:
The Democratic Alliance wishes the grade 12 learners in the Northern Cape well with their upcoming National Senior Certificate examinations. We believe that learners will reap the benefits of their hard work and preparations done throughout the year.
We encourage learners to use the educational opportunities at hand to unlock their future potential. Continue to study hard so that you are prepared for all your papers. Don’t become discouraged if one paper is harder than expected and do not lose sight of your goals.
We appreciate all the support given to learners by their families and communities.
It is heartening that grade 12 learners from all five districts will be participating in the examinations and that we do not have a repeat from last year, where all grade 12 learners from the John Taolo Gaetsewe district were deregistered.
The first paper, the practical component of Computer Applications Technology, will be written on Monday 19 October.
