Dlabathi emphasises that it’s important for all the schools that performed poorly in the recent matric exams, to get all the necessary support to improve their performance this coming year.

The school achieved a 97.5% pass rate, followed by JE Malepe Secondary School’s 92.7% pass rate.

He congratulated the entire class of 2016, teachers and parents for the work they put into ensuring that the results improve annually.

“This goes to show how township schools can produce, if they are well supported.

“We further congratulate Thembinkosi Johannes Manyeruke (17) from Tsakane Secondary School, on his outstanding performance.

“With such outstanding results from a township school learner, the future of our country and City of Ekurhuleni certainly is promising,” says Dlabathi.
