South Africa: POPCRU Wishes All Matriculants the Best of Luck

press release

The Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union (POPCRU) wishes the best of luck to all class of 2017 matriculants as they start with their all-important final examinations from today onwards.

Just as human beings need oxygen to survive in the world, education is as important because it aims to develop their future talents. There is nothing more important as education gives us knowledge of the world around us and changes it into something better. It develops in us a perspective of looking at life.

For us to transform our country, we need to take collective action in supporting our children's education in the quest of enabling, empowering, uplifting and changing lives for the better.

If we want to see the world as a just and fair place where everyone is given equal opportunities, education is what we require. Education is a must if we want to do away with the existing differences between different social classes and genders. It opens a whole world of opportunities for the poor so that they may have an equal shot at sustainable jobs.
