The Executive Mayor of the Sarah Baartman District Municipality, Khunjuzwa Eunice Kekana, together with the Speaker of Council, Deon De Vos, today handed over approximately 48 cheques of R5000 each to top performing Grade 12's from 2015.

"As the District Municipality, we realized that the majority of these top performing learners, one from each school in the District, come from a previously disadvantaged background and would need assistance in order to successfully enter tertiary education. We wanted to invest in the future of these promising learners," said the Executive Mayor during the handover ceremony.

The ceremony was also attended by learners who are currently in Grade 12 as well as the School Principles, Educators, Mayors of the respective local municipalities and Councillors from the Sarah Baartman District Municipality.

The Executive Mayor praised the dedication of the Educators and encouraged them to keep up the good work.
