Kelebogile Trust, a subsidiary of the Kathu Solar Park project re-sponsible for community develop-ment in the area of its operations, has donated about 1040 toiletry packs to learners attending the Spring Camp lessons in various centres in the district.
The trust's community liaison officer, Dalene Botha, said that they had propo-sed the idea to augment the good strate-gy the Department of Education has brought in its bid to improve the pass rate by the year end.
Matric learners from different schools were assembled at different centres where they received thorough revision work in various subjects as a means to prepare them for the final examinations. The consolidation exercise separated learners from their homes to maximise the level of concentration as they are pre-paring for the examinations.
Speaking to the centre manager, Ms Teise, at Kalahari High School, in charge of about 156 learners from Gamagara High School, Langeberg High School and Bothithong High School, said that the ultimate goal was to improve the pass rate within the region. She acknowled-ged that the overall mid-year results had not been impressive and learners ought
to accelerate their work rate.
Other centres that received the packs are Deben, Van Zylsrus and Batlharotlhaping. The exercise started on September 28, 2017 to October 08, 2017.
Learners taking similar subjects were merg-ed from different schools to consolidate the content done.
There is a general feeling that while educa-tors are doing their best to let learners obtain
better results, learners are dragging their feet. Learners lack self-discipline and want educa-tors to persuade them to attend classes. Bad results obtained by learners do not factor them as direct culprits but find educators in the crucifixion list. Learning starts from home and an educator simply flavours the content, this is an open secret.
