TOP OF THE CLASS: The top three best achievers in Coega's Maths & Science Programme for the
year are from left Ncedo Siphika (20), Lusindiso Vika (19) and Xola Ndzima (20).
The Coega Development Corporation (CDC) awarded its top nine (9) Math’s and Science (M&S) programme learners for the year 2017.
The M&S programme, which has since inception improved marks of well over 320 learners over a period of ten months has managed to achieve a 100% pass rate for Physical Science and 98% for Mathematics. In the class of 2017, consisting of 80 learners, the class obtained a 99% pass rate for both Maths & Science. This at the backdrop of a sponsorship injection earlier this year by the Council for the Build Environment (CBE).
Addressing the class at the prize giving Eldon September, CDC Physical Science Facilitator highlighted that, “where you come from should not define where you going, remember that education is an equalizer which will allow you to achieve whatever you want in life.”
The students were awarded with certificates of achievement honoring their dedication and commitment towards improving their grades. The event, which included parents, teachers and executive management from the CDC took place at the Coega Business Processing Outsourcing (BPO) Park earlier this week.
The M&S programme seeks to improve Mathematics and Physical Science symbols for grade 12 learners with the express objective of improving learner’s aptitude in critical thinking skills as well as to inspire and support learners. “It is important to aim high enough even if we miss the target we should still achieve the extraordinary,” says Christopher Mashigo, CDC Executive Manager of Business Development.”
