Tjankie High School - both in the Joe Moro-long municipality, with Kalahari High School from Ga-Segonyana municipality taking the third spot.
The awards were bestowed for the fourth year and have been fully supported by the Department of Education and the com-munities at large.
Addressing learners and the community, the Executive Mayor, Sofia Mosikatsi, said that she was very proud of the achieve-ments of the district since the intervention of the National Department of Education in 2014, when the district experienced a high matric failure rate.
The intervention saw the district making a turn-around through the support and intervention by stakeholders such as the JTG Developmental Trust, the Department of Education and the mining houses.
The success of a learner is a great pride to any parent and educator. This was evi-dent as learners were accompanied by their parents and teachers to this auspicious academic event.
The district scored a 0.9% pass rate improvement of 71.4% from the previous year. The executive mayor motivated stu-dents to study harder and encouraged pa-rents to continue supporting their children in pursuit of academic excellence.
The mayor also appealed for cooperation between sector departments and munici-palities as issues revolving around service delivery affect and disrupt learning when schools are burned down and roads closed unnecessarily.
She was encouraged and enthused by the Joe Morolong rural schools that contin-ue to churn out exceptional results.
Ms Mosikatsi finally said that learners, pa-rents and educators had to work together to come out with such sterling achievements.
The principal of Dibotswa High School and the community of Dithakong were jubi-lant for the school and the principal assured the authorities that they will do their best to defend the trophy. He indicated that all accolades ought to go to the previous principal, teachers and learners though, because he had just started with the school in January 2018.
