Congratulatory Message from the Mayor of Newcastle Local Municipality to the Class of 2017

The class of 2017, Amajuba District has once again made us proud by achieving the second place after the uMgungundlovu District in the Province of Kwa Zulu Natal, by attaining 80.51 %, we congratulate them by a job well done, we are still optimistic that there will be improvement in the coming years.

The achievement we believe would have not been possible without the commitment of the dedicated staff of the Department of Basic Education under the stewardship of the Former Director Rev. Sithole and the current Acting Director Mr. M. Khumalo should be applauded in all corners of our society, the hard work put together by the dedicated teachers who performed beyond expectation.

The hard work put together by the Learners who sometimes swim against the tide mostly because of conditions they had to prepare themselves under, we congratulate and wish them very well in their future endeavours, to those who did not make it because of various circumstances we wish to send a message that it does not end here, they must use opportunities presented to them to better their lives.

We convey the congratulatory message to all of them for making us proud, and we are keenly interested in them to keep doing hard work and never forget to keep their eyes on their ambition and focus on achieving more than they have already mastered. We wish them well in their future endeavours

We rise by lifting others!!!!!
