Thousands of learners across the province can kick their feet up, after the school year came to an end on Friday.
MEC for Education in the Western Cape, Cameron Dugmore appeals to all teachers, principals, pupils as well parents to have a very safe holiday especially to the learners.
“All matriculants can do is wait till the 28th December and have a good and safe time. When our teachers leave school on Tuesday they should spend time with their families, recuperate and think again about what it is that made them become teachers in the first place,” says Dugmore.
Dugmore added that he wants to thank all the officials of the department who also put in a lot of work helping to develop all the targets for high schools this year.
“I predict that 2008 is going to be the best year yet for education in the Western Cape,” says Dugmore.
