Office of The Executive Mayor


The much anticipated, tense, and exciting time of the year has arrived for Grade 12 learners. The month of October marks a critical period for these young people as they begin their final examinations marking the end of their primary education.

Executive Mayor, Cllr Sivuyile Ngodwana, would like to wish all the learners luck in writing their end-of-year examinations, especially the matriculants. “This final assessment for this group of pupils marks the end of one huge chapter of their schooling life and the beginning of a new era.

“Twelve years of primary education is a long time and it’s a blessing to see them sticking it out till the end. We know there are many young people who get held back by life’s challenges and never reach the matric level. I would like to wish all those who will be sitting for their Grade 12 final exams this year all the very best and I hope that they continue doing those last-minute brush-up preparations,” says Mayor Ngodwana.

The office of the Executive Mayor hopes this year’s final matric examinations spanning from October to December will be conducted smoothly without any glitches.

“I sincerely wish the class of 2023 a peaceful and smooth examination. I further urge all families to support their children with all they have through this trying period,” Mayor Ngodwana concludes.
