“My name is Nkosinathi. I am a matriculant at Senaone Secondary School. When we start schooling at an early age and it is everyone’s dream to reach matric. Now that I am in matric it is my duty to make sure that I pass. Thank you for bringing such a workshop to us; it really has helped a lot in terms of focus and direction. This has been a very strange year for everyone. When the year started, we had dreams and we hoped things will go smoothly as always but here we are facing the challenge of COVID-19 which has affected us both at school and in our homes. At this stage, we really need all the necessary help that we can get to pass our matric. Our teachers are trying their best and we also have to play our part in making sure that we pass.” Learner- Senaone Secondary School, Soweto.
