The Village Voice
Crack learner Amukelo Alicia Nkuna, who was a top learner at Shigamani High school I last year’s grade 12 results has appreciated the local traditional leadership and local pastors for playing a role in her life.
She got two distinctions in her final results and for her efforts she was appreciated by local traditional leader Hosi Bohani Shigamani and local pastor Velaphi Khosa.
She received an amount of R9 150 from the two.
This was after the traditional leadership and the local pastor went to school and as a way of motivating the grade 12 learners, they promised financial incentives to the top learner at the school.
And Amukelo became tops and she is now at the University of Witwatersrand.
In her message, she says the intervention of the chief and local structures in their education motivated the learners a great deal and made a difference in their performance.
“I think the local leadership must continue what they are doing and it will help a lot in motivating the Class of 2023,”shbe said.
Hosi Shigamani says they went to motivate the learners and they were happy with the results.
The school that had a poor pass rate of 58, 3 per cent the previous year ended up having 84,8 per cent.
He says they will go back to the school and motivate the class of 2023.
But he played his cards close to the chest and did not want to disclose what they will be offering the top achievers.
Hosi Shigamani is the Collins Chabane branch secretary of Contralesa and well as the executive member of Contralesa in Limpopo.
