Phumelele High School records 100% pass in Ma­tric

Observer on Saturday - - News - By Si­mon Sha­bangu

Phumelele High School has once again done well in the Ma­tric ex­am­i­na­tions amass­ing a 100 per cent pass in this year’s re­sults which were re­leased yes­ter­day.

Ac­cord­ing to the Di­rec­tor of the school Sa­belo Mavuso they have once again been able to do well in this im­por­tant pro­gramme.

Mavuso who was the first indige­nous Swazi to ven­ture in the pri­vate school line of busi­ness, said they were ex­cited about the out­come not­ing that this was not their first time ex­celling as they did same even last year.

Po­si­tion

He said last year the school was po­si­tion five in the Manzini Re­gion.

“I am ex­cited that we were able to do well even this year,” Mavuso said.

He stated that 12 pupils sat for the Grade 12 ex­ter­nal ex­am­i­na­tions.

He said they would be ad­mit­ting new pupils af­fec­tive Mon­day and had ob­served a tremen­dous growth in the en­rol­ment of ma­tric classes over the years.

“It is a good thing that par­ents are tak­ing this ma­tric thing se­ri­ous be­cause it helps the stu­dents to have easy ac­cess to uni­ver­si­ties es­pe­cially in South Africa and abroad.

With ma­tric a stu­dent is eas­ily ac­cepted in any univer­sity es­pe­cially be­cause as a coun­try we are still not self-suf­fi­cient when it comes to ter­tiary in­sti­tu­tions. Stu­dents who want to be doc­tors have to go out of the coun­try. With our ma­tric there will be no need for them to bridge cour­ses,” he said.

Open

“Our of­fices will be open from Mon­day and par­ents are wel­come to come to our of­fices and reg­is­ter their chil­dren.

I en­cour­age those who have com­pleted Form Five to also con­sider en­rolling for ma­tric so that they have easy ac­cess to uni­ver­si­ties out­side the coun­try,” he said.
