Learners encouraged to 'Be the Legacy'

“This year is the centenary, it is 100 years of Tata Madiba and Mama Sisulu. These are two struggle giants who we celebrate with the theme: ‘Be the legacy’. When we talk about our heroes, we talk about what they have done for us, what they have sacrificed for us. You wouldn’t be seated here if it wasn’t for them. That’s why we say we must be the legacy of what they wanted us to be,” said Public Works Minister Thulas Nxesi.

The Minister was speaking during an Imbizo in Kameldrift where the department is hosting a Winter School Program.

Over 100 learners from 22 schools from across the country have been adopted by the department are attending the program.

The purpose of the program is to expose Grades 10 and 12 pupils to the build and property career fields. The programme also seeks to promote the skills development in the built environment sector in line with the infrastructure plan.

He told a group of high school learners that the only way they would change their lives for the better is by studying.
