Lastly they were given a road map which is a clear indication that from their journey they still have to face many challenges and what matters the most is how they address those detours

Learners were reflecting on the challenges they are facing and how they can address them
Grade 12 learners were asked to read the Pledge, before signing it
The event was a success. Leaners were motivated and they enjoyed the motivational session. From the guest speaker they learned that challenges will come and they must remain resilience. They also learned that the right attitude can take them the long way. They also need to strive for greatness. “Challenges will come and go”, she said, “but like a storm and as a marine you must remain calm and listen to your captain and your fellow marines.” Awareness and pass percentage were also addressed by the DoE representative and their expectation from the leaners.
Road maps were discussed, targets were sets and the pledges were read and signed by the learners.
