More than a dozen teenagers will be strut­ting their stuff on the cat­walk hop­ing to be crowned the first Miss Ma­tric held in OR Tambo mu­nic­i­pal­ity.

High school teacher Mon­al­isa Bangaza has or­gan­ised a beauty pageant for girls in Grade 12 say­ing she wants them to be role mod­els for the younger gen­er­a­tion. “The other pupils in the schools al­ready look up to the ma­tric pupils but now we want to en­hance that by en­cour­ag­ing neat­ness and tidi­ness as well,” Bangaza said.

The pageant will take place in the OR Tambo Hall in Vulindlela Heights on Satur­day.

The 15 fi­nal­ists will be com­pet­ing in four cat­e­gories where they will be wear­ing their school uni­form, ma­tric farewell dresses, biki­nis with tu­tus as well as ca­sual wear.

Bangaza said she was start­ing small but hoped things would im­prove next year.
