In support of matrics
JONGI'KHAYA, a non profit organisation from Ekuphumleni in Whittlesea, in partnership with Nolitha Ralane of Funda High School and Thobeka Sishuba of Motman High School, hosted a motivational day for matriculants at Ekuphumleni Community Hall recently.
The aim was to motivate matriculants who are orphans and those who come from child-headed homes to do their best.
Khanyisa Mabhele of Jongi'khaya said the event was attended by pupils from six high schools in Whittlesea and pupils from other schools in the Chris Hani district.
“We also invited Nokwanda Nkamana from the education department HIV and Aids section.”
Mabhele said people tended to forget there were many is- sues facing matriculants.
“This day was just to remind them they have the power vested in them and that they can become anything they want to in life.”
