SADTU North West welcomes the 2016 Matric Results

5 January 2017

SADTU in the North West welcomes and appreciates the release of 2016 matric results. We want to congratulate all stakeholders inter alia, senior management of the Department under the Honorable MEC Sello Lehari, districts and area offices officials, principals, learners and selfless teachers; SADTU members to be specific. This we do following our knowledge of challenges facing the system. Indeed, the province with all its forces managed to prove no material condition of whatever magnitude can pull us down.

As stakeholders, you navigated this huge ship to these flamboyant results through very limited resources and infrastructural problems in certain areas. With these results, a very strong signal is triggered that the province has the capacity to move to greater heights.

We as SADTU once more re-commit ourselves to engage in further scientific analysis of this performance as a way to:

  • Assist in the re-evaluation of the system`s strengths and weaknesses
  • Provide the basis for benchmarking with other best performing provinces
  • Guide the system in addressing challenges prevailing and also consolidating the gains attained
  • Facilitate prompt and more intensified intervention strategies

The Union will, like in the past, engage and work with the Department to facilitate maximum performance in 2017. We call upon our members to once more display their ability to strike a balance between their roles as employees of the department and also as agents of change in our revolution.

The journey through 2017 has its own challenges and therefore requires all of us to put our hands on deck. Together we stand and shall conquer. Once more, congratulations and keep the good work.
