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.”
