“As Members we welcome the results, and especially warmly welcome the improvement shown by rural provinces like the Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal and Limpopo,” Ms Gina said.

“We are also impressed by good performance of the special schools that recorded around 900 bachelor passes. As a Committee we focussed on special schools, and so did the Department. The efforts are showing fruitful results and we are happy,” she said.
