Mpumalanga Education MEC Mr Bonakele Majuba paid a visit to a spring vacation centre at Phake on Monday morning ahead of 2020 final matric exam.
This Centre is set to host three schools, namely Mmametlake, Mmabothe and Rathanhana Secondary Schools with a total of 425 grade 12 learners where learners will be preparing themselves for the exams.
The Mpumalanga Department of Education says they have organised 66 Spring Vacation Centres to cater for 11 881 grade 12 learners from schools which performed below the 70% mark in the 2019 National Senior Certificate Examination.
A number of 942 teachers have been selected to teach in these centres from Monday, 26 to 30 October 2020 (5 days) focusing on 11 high enrolment subjects.
MEC Majuba said that the Department will provide Nutrition to all learners and Scholar Transport where there is a need.
“We intend to support all schools and non performing schools so that they can all move beyond the 70% performance mark. Our main focus is on quality passes as we expect our learners to pass with good grades,” said MEC Majuba.
