Molao calls on schools to emulate Kgabophuti primary

Minister of Basic Education, Mr Fedelis Molao has urged schools in Moshupa sub-region to benchmark with Kgabophuti in order to improve the ranking of the region.

Mr Molao said this when giving a keynote address during a ceremony to award Kgabophuti Primary School a trophy for being the best performing primary school in Moshupa Sub-district.

The school managed to retain the trophy, after being best amongst the six schools in the sub-region for three consecutive years.

“I am informed that the pass rates have improved over the years, from 67 per cent Primary School Leaving Exams (PSLE) achievement in 2011 to 93 per cent in 2019,” he said. 

He said improved academic results in schools was highly desired and that government was committed to ensuring such was achieved.

Mr Molao applauded Moshupa Pensioners Association, which awarded the school the trophy, for their kind gesture and ensuring that teachers and learners were motivated to strive for academic excellence. 

“I wish to forward my sincere gratitude to you pensioners for your role in facilitating and encouraging the development of education through annual trophy drive,” he said.

Mr Molao commended the association for their commitment towards encouraging performance in schools, at the time when government was equally concerned about poor academic performance in schools, adding such an initiative would encourage school to attain good academic results.

“This is indeed a demonstration of your vision to seeing the sub-region being the champions in their region,” he said. 

He implored other stakeholders to come up with more of such initiatives aimed at promoting good academic performance in schools.

Mr Molao said it was evident that Kgabophuti had taken the initiative seriously. 

He noted that the school had made commendable strides in the last eight years. Ends
