Matric of 2020 and 2021 wasn't easy for learners, things have been tough for them as they were attending in shifts. Our matric learners didn't have much time to sit in the classroom and receive proper teaching from their teachers. Even so, some of the learners managed to pass their matric well last year and this year we are still hoping for the best from them.
