The ANC Nelson Mandela Region extends its congratulations to all Matriculants in Port Elizabeth, Uitenhage, Despatch, Colchester and surrounds. To those who passed: we wish you the best in your future endeavours, whether it be in furthering your studies or entering the job market; to those who unfortunately did not make it this time around: do not despair, the ANC encourages you to try and try again – remember, you only fail when you stop trying to succeed!
To the Matriculants of 2013: studying starts from the very first day of school, please approach what will trustfully be your last year of High school with commitment and focus.
A special word of encouragement to all Grade Rs and Grade 1s who will be starting their schooling careers this year. You are the future of our country, whatever you learn in school will make you better leaders tomorrow.
To all teachers: the nation depends on you to educate, empower, develop and nurture our young ones, we entrust this responsibility onto you for the hours that our youth are in school; we ask that you deliver on this responsibility for a brighter future for our country.
