“Free State makes an invaluable contribution to the overall quality of the matric results we produce as a country. The Free State continues to set the bar extremely high, and without doubt, the level of excellence propels the entire country upward.

The consistency of the Free State shows robustness and a systematic approach to producing excellence. There’s nothing more important to the country than our children, and the Free State has made a telling investment in the education of its youth,” Minister Angie Motshekga.

South Africa has a history of stubborn poverty, and investing in the education of our youth is the only way to guarantee a prosperous future for our country. Education is truly a key to alleviating the triple challenges of inequality, poverty and unemployment.

The message of the provincial government to learners is very clear; each one must do his/her very best in the upcoming examinations and believe in oneself.

“While we acknowledge the pressure that comes with writing year-end examinations, our hope is that our learners do not crumble and instead demonstrate what they learnt throughout the year.

The class of 2022 have huge boots to fill after their predecessors’ wonders when the Free State Province, under the tutelage of Mampudi, MEC Makgoe, became the best-performing province in the country.

Although we have every intention of holding to our title, it is important that the learners do not place themselves under unnecessary pressure. We have faith in them, and with support from all of us, the class of 2022, just like those who came before them, will do well in their examinations,” Premier Sisi Ntomebela.
