Learners gathered at school to be motivated


Modipadi high school was fully packed with grade twelve learners to be inspired by various academic speakers at Mohwelere village on 10 August 2018. The key note was to embolden learners towards final exams. The panellist includes Lobethal circuit manager, Faith Motlhapi, Economics lecturer from university of Zulu land, Mashapa Sekome, Miss Baroka football club first princess, Zodwa Mdingi and other professionals.

Organiser of the occasion, Herbert Sello said the initiative was aimed to improve knowledge of the learners. “We are aware of Sekhukhune district poor performance of matric exams results. This crisis has been caused by some rural schools. We are here to urge learners to work hard to pass well. Educators can’t fight this poor performance alone they need our interventions,” said Herbert. He said despite good results from Lobethal circuit every learner need to be accommodated. “Social grand must not be seen as a poverty solution to the learners,” Herbert concluded.

Over ten years’ experience lecturer, Mashapa Sekome reassured learners to work very hard to fulfil their goals. He said education is the key and learners must read their books and consult educators endlessly. Mashapa urged matriculants to take into consideration advises given to them by their teachers. “Nothing is free in life even successful people have to work hard to achieve their goals. We must deal with language barrier which affects learners very badly at the tertiary institutions. They need to adapt communication skills,” said Mashapa. He said learners must choose their career wisely.

Modipadi’s headmaster, Daniel Patjane confessed that his learners did not perform very well in the past midterm exams as well as matric 2017. “As collective we deem learners would grab the information provided today and benefit from this initiative. We invited our neighbour Matsebe and Nkgonyeletse school to be part of the initiative. We shirk to be called dysfunctional institutions,” said the principal. He thanked the organiser and wished learners well due to their trial exams.
