Eskom lauds matrics of 2015


ELECTRICIT­Y parastatal Eskom yesterday congratula­ted all 2015 matriculan­ts and reminded them that Eskom further education and training bursaries were still available for 2016. In particular, Eskom congratula­ted St John’s College in Mthatha in the Eastern Cape on its “outstandin­g” results. “St John’s is a beneficiar­y of Eskom through the telematics initiative and achieved more than a 90 percent pass rate in 2015,” Eskom said. The telematics system uses modern technology to broadcast lessons by teaching experts live from the University of Stellenbos­ch into classrooms in remote and rural areas, allowing pupils to have direct access to renowned educators and the extra curriculum support often needed.
