As the Executive Mayor of the Greater Oudtshoorn I would like to congratulate the 2016 Grade 12 learners who have passed.
You have not only made yourselves proud, but also your parenents, families and the greater Oudtshoorn. You are now reaping fruits of your 12-year resillience and hard work.
Remember, the father of the nation Dr. Nelson Mandela once said: “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Go out, further your education and change the world.
To those learners who did not pass Grade 12, you have only failed this time, the opportunity to improve your education still exists. I’m encouraging you to get up and cease that opportunity, your future is in your hands.
Lastly, we would like to thank the educators, all stakeholders involved in the education sector in town and outside and everyonelese who made it possible for our learners to thrive to be among the best in the World. Your efforts did not go unnoticed. We are proud of you.Last published 13 January 2017
