Perseverance Key to Success

| June 15, 2015

Simon Ratshosa Primary School has embraced the art of teaching after scoring above the regional target of 80 per cent that was expected to be scored by every school that falls under the central region.

Speaking at the academic top achievement ceremony held at Botsalo Hotel in Palapye under the theme: Teacher- the pillar in delivering quality service towards excellence, Simon Ratshosa School head, Ms Connie Nkobela said throughout the year the school had seen growth and improvement in terms of school results and service delivery.

Ms Nkobela said after all the sweat they found it fit to rejoice their success, adding that ‘greatness is achieved by great people who through any circumstances stand together and work as a team.’

The theme, Ms Nkobela said, was appropriate because in 2014 the school did well, not only in primary school leaving examinations but also impressed with an outstanding performance of 80 per cent in all standards (1-7), successfully meeting the regional academic target.

She noted that was achieved through commitment, hard work and collective efforts by teachers.

The school head said they were not surprised by the results as they aimed for that. Last year, they scored 90.6 per cent in primary school leaving examinations emerging second in the Serowe sub region.

Ms Nkobela said that was a great achievement hence adopting the Ministry of Education and Skills Development’s major initiative of Top Achievers celebration. She said as employees their main focus was building a harmonious working and learning environment.

She said they would walk through the journey with their heads up to ensure that they remain pillars of future generations.

Ms Nkobela said they managed to score high academically through the good working relationship they have with their Parents Teachers Association, schools stampers and other stakeholders who participated and supported in their endeavour.

The staff extended their gratitude to Stanlib Investment who took them out to Botsalo Hotel, where they were served refreshments.

Simon Ratshosa School, which is in Serowe, is a group two school with an enrollment of 592 pupils, 23 teachers including head and deputy and nine additional support staff.
