Top achievers in RNM awarded

RNM municipal spokesperson Simon April said the top-performing pupils in urban and rural areas within RNM received cellphones, laptops, trophies, and certificates.

Ray Nkonyeni Municipality (RNM) deputy mayor Sibusiso Shange has challenged the matric class of 2024 in the Ugu District, to reclaim its top position in KZN in the National Senior Certificate (NSC) exams.

Shange was speaking at the RNM Excellence Awards held at the Port Shepstone Civic Centre last week.
He said the district must not be discouraged that it was removed from the top position it enjoyed in the province over the last four years.

“If we look at the numbers, we produced better results this year which is 89.5% compared to 87.2% in 2022. We must understand that the bar has been raised very high. The challenge in 2024 is to reclaim our top position in the province. We are mindful that support to pupils goes beyond the classroom in areas where poverty is a sad reality. We should be proud that our province produced matric results that surpass well-resourced provinces. I believe this is because of the dedication of not only teachers and pupils but also the collaboration of parents and the Department of Education,” said Shange.

He added that they want to congratulate the matric class of 2023 for their hard work.

RNM municipal spokesperson Simon April said the top-performing pupils in urban and rural areas within the municipality were rewarded with cellphones, laptops, trophies, and certificates.

Ronald Wood of the Department of Education in Ugu said: “We often find that when a person does well we forget the amount of work that has gone into that success, and it is easy for it to slip under the carpet. So, it goes without saying that this success needs to be appreciated and recognised by all those who played a role in it.”
