However, the Secretary General appreciated the great efforts made by the township, rural and non-paying schools. This is because it is reported that these schools attained good passes.

The Secretary General went on and reportedly touched on the difficulties faced by other schools that did not have sufficient resources.

He highlighted how difficult it was for some learners whose schools got shut down and had to adapt to learning in other schools.

Activities such as extra lessons , working on weekends , afternoon lessons and early morning lessons.Maluleke said that all these efforts were being initiated to prepare the learners for the examinations, hence it paid off but at a huge cost.
