Media Release: Sedibeng East District of Education Sustains Excellent Matric Results

06 January 2016 - The matric students together with their parents waited in anticipation for the outcomes of 2015 matric results which were released on the 05 January 2016.

We join millions in celebrating our best matric results ever since the birth of our democracy. This is an indication that our country is on track to meet the vision espoused in the Freedom Charter, “The Doors of Learning and Culture Shall Be Open To All!”.

As we particularly welcome the 2015 Matric Results for the Sedibeng East as the top district in the country which has consistently performed exceptionally well since 2013 with 90.7% pass rate and sustaining this percentage in 2014 in the second position, only to reclaim the top position again in 2015 with a whooping 90.4%.

We take this moment to also congratulate Gauteng for producing the largest number of Bachelor passes at 38 760 out of a total of 108 442 candidates, with 84.2% pass rate.

The Executive Mayor of Emfuleni Local Municipality, Cllr. Mahole Simon Mofokeng is scheduled to honour the top learners from the two Sedibeng Districts, and had the following to say about the achievements, “The Municipality in partnership with the Sedibeng East District - the best performed Education District nationally and other stakeholders will be hosting Learner Awards Ceremony to acknowledge the achievements. It is through concerted effort by all stakeholders in education fraternity in the Region which include parents, educators and learners that we continue to observe improvements in our matric results.”

He went on to say that it is only through collective and common vision of ensuring that learners are in class, educators teach them and parents ensure that their children attended school without fail that will bear fruit and make us stand tall amongst others and he urged all those who may have not done well or as expected to not despair.

Cllr. Mofokeng also called on all parents, guardians and educators to work together in supporting key government interventions which are aimed at improving performance in key gateway subjects.

Well done to the Class of 2015!
