Parents ensure matrics attend winter boot camps – Mshengu

As the academic calendar reached the winter break this past Friday, 24 June, the KwaZulu-Natal MEC for Education Kwazi Mshengu urged parents to support matrics in attending winter boot camps.

MOTIVATING THE MATRICS DURING WINTER BREAK

According to the statement, the Department of Education strives to improve the pass rate, starting at Grade R, working consistently, thereby achieving a minimum pass rate of 80% in the National Senior Certificate Examination.

“This is our goal, progressively achieving our vision of a 100% pass rate, “said MEC Mshengu.

“We are visiting the 12 Districts and meeting with the District MANCO to hear the state of the District readiness and to encourage, support their Academic Improvement Pan and bridge the gaps.”

“We request parents and guardians to give full support to the Grade 12 learners and ensure they attend our winter boot camps,”

COMPARING PAST MATRIC RESULTS

The KZN matric results for 2021/ Class of 2021 reflected a 0.8% decrease compared to the 77,60% achieved in 2020. These results dragged KZN to fifth position out of nine other provinces.

A MESSAGE FOR THE WINTER BREAK

As the winter holidays just began, Mshengu wished all the learners and school staff a safe winter vacation.

Schools reopen on the 19th of July.
