Itireleng JSS Celebrates Success

| May 15, 2015

The Botswana Meat Commission (BMC) chief executive officer, Dr Akolang Tombale, has lauded Itireleng Junior Secondary School in Lobatse for triumphing in their Junior Certificate Examination (JCE) results.

He said this during the school awards ceremony in Lobatse recently, in celebration of the school’s end of year results. Itireleng School garnered 65.9 per cent in the 2014 JCE results, attaining the first position out of 34 schools in the southern region.

Dr Tombale said the achievement is commendable as it shows the school has lived up to its name Itireleng which means “doing it for oneself”. He also said the victory was even ‘sweeter’ despite challenges and transitioning of the education system.

The school, he said should consider their previous pass mark when Itireleng would score 90 per cent or higher like in 2009.

He lauded the school management and teachers as well as the community for sailing through despite the socio-economic challenges of the town and urged them not to be easily demotivated by such but to stay focused to achieve their objectives.

Dr Tombale further praised the government education system and urged the pupils to embrace as it has not only achieved great grades for the schools in the past years, but also has been a pillar of strength for the young and promising economy over the years.

He also praised the school for an improvement in the pass rate adding in 2013 it got position two with 57 per cent.
