Phumelele High School records 100% pass in Matric
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.
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.
“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.
