On the 31st of January 2018, the Executive Mayor, Cllr Vusi Motha with Mkhondo local business people and Municipal officials made a visit to Nganana Secondary School situated in Amsterdam.
After three consecutive years of an unacceptable perfomance, Nganana Secondary school’s matric class of 2017 has put Amsterdam Circuit on the map by raising the pass rate to 95,6 %, which resulted in them being placed first in the Amsterdam Circuit. Mr Manana, the Head Master, showed his appreciation to the educators, learners, School Governing Body and the parents for working together towards the success of the learners.
He thanked the Management of Mkhondo Local Municipality for always taking time out of their hectic schedules to visit schools and people in general. The principal further thanked the class of 2017 for such wonderful results. Mrs Sibiya, the Amsterdam Circuit Manager, thanked the school for making Amsterdam and Mkhondo proud. She further emphasised that the school must continue to work even harder to obtain a 100% pass rate.
Ward Cllr J.P. Makhathini was very delighted with the Mayor’s visit. He thanked the learners for working hard towards their success. The Executive Mayor in his address encouraged the learners to focus more on their studies so that they can have a better future. He mentioned that unity creates success, which means learners and teachers must work together.
He then urged the pupils to be disciplined as it is the key to everyone’s future. “Even if you are from a poor family background you must study harder to create a better future,” Cllr Vusi Motha concluded.
