Matriculants, remain calm and good luck
Premier’s pre-exam message
Lubabalo Oscar Mabuyane, the Premier of the Eastern Cape Province and the Eastern Cape Provincial Legislature Speaker, MPL Helen Sauls-August have made a call for the EC community to support matriculants during their 2019 final matric examinations.
A total of 103 312 learners are writing examinations from 939 public schools, 50 independent centres and 54 designated centres.
“I wish all the Grade 12 learners that will be writing their final examinations from October 23, the best of luck. All of you have received support from the National, Provincial departments of Education, parents, private sector and civil society organisations preparing you to be ready for these examinations,” said Mabuyane.
As the provincial government, they are confident that the work done by all the partners led by Education MEC Fundile Gade, will ensure that all learners write their examinations without hindrances.
“We hope there will be no incidents of cheating in the province during these examinations,” added the Premier.
The Provincial Legislature is convinced that its oversight role on portfolio committee has assisted the department of education and learners to do well in the National Senior Certificate examinations.
“We appeal to the learners to remain calm, steadfast during the examination period. We call for community structures, churches and Law enforcement agencies to ensure maximum safety of learners and their study groups during this period,” said August-Sauls.
