Play Your Part by delivering and receiving quality education

Johannesburg, Tuesday 14 January 2014 – With the 2014 school year beginning tomorrow Wednesday 15 January 2014, Brand South Africa urges all teachers to deliver quality education for the growth and development of our country.  Brand South Africa also calls on learners to be committed to their future by focusing on their studies.

Brand South Africa CEO Miller Matola said, “According to the 2013 Results for Learning Report, there has been an increase in the number of children attending and completing primary school as well as having access to lower-secondary school.  We have also recently welcomed an improved matric pass rate.  This is good news since education is the foundation of a country’s development.  

We therefore urge learners and teachers to be committed to being in the classroom, teaching and learning.”

“Brand South Africa urges the youth, particularly the matriculants of 2014 to remain dedicated throughout the year and reach high to achieve the results they are capable of. Play your Part, Do Best,” concluded Mr Matola.
