South Africa: Best Wishes to All Pupils and Educators for 2013

press release

“As the new school year begins it brings with it so much hope especially with the increment in the class of 2012 pass rate. It is also a beginning of a new chapter for all (teachers and pupils of all grades). Everyone is fresh from the holidays and is looking forward to the year ahead,” said Hon. Mntomuhle Khawula, Shadow MEC for Education.

The Inkatha Freedom Party acknowledges the commitment each teacher and parent, and principals as well as governing bodies, will invest for the year 2013 and towards the future of their children and education. The IFP also notes that as the year begins there are many learners who are starting the year with great odds against them, however we hope that working towards their future will make them forget the barriers that they are faced with.

“We are hoping that this is a year where the department will solve most of the problems facing our schools, whether it's lack of textbooks, poor school infrastructure or difficulties for pupils in rural areas that walk long distances, we hope that the department resolves these issues so that they don’t affect our pupils and educators,” said Hon. Khawula.
