The North-West University (NWU) recently celebrated the achievements of the top performing Grade 10 to 12 learners at the official closing ceremony of the 2019 Ikateleng project in Lichtenburg.
The project, now in its 30th year, is a joint initiative undertaken with Agricultural Group, NWK.
Ikateleng – which means empower yourself – provides supplementary teaching in mathematics, economics, business studies, accounting, life science, physical science and English to high school learners from Grade 10 to 12. This year 500 learners enrolled in the Ikateleng project.
"Ikateleng is one of the NWK's longest running corporate social investment projects. I hope we have made a difference in your lives and in your futures," said NWK's marketing manager, Johan Bezuidenhout.
Also speaking at the closing ceremony were the NWU's Johan Zerwick and Lemo Masethe, manager of the Ikateleng project. They encouraged learners to make use of the opportunities Ikateleng provides and to stay clear of anything that might jeopardise their futures.
The 2020 Ikateleng project will commence in February, earlier than normal to make up for school holidays during the year.
