Sedibeng delighted at being top matric district

Sedibeng was followed by Gauteng West, the Overberg district in the Western Cape and the Cape Metropolitan area.

The Sedibeng district in Gauteng was overjoyed on Tuesday night after being named as the best performing district in the 2015 matric examinations, beating out 80 other districts for top honours.

The 2015 matric results were announced in Johannesburg by Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga on Tuesday.

South Africa’s 2015 matric pass rate stood at 70.7 percent, a drop of five percent compared to the 75.8 percent achieved in 2014.

But for the Sedibeng district there was joy, with the office of the Executive Mayor Busisiwe Modisakeng “delighted at the exceptional results”.

Spokesperson Lebo Mofokeng said: “We thank Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi for the vision he has put out for us. Congratulations are in order for those matriculants who worked hard.”

Sedibeng was followed by Gauteng West, the Overberg district in the Western Cape and the Cape Metropolitan area.

Earlier Motshekga said: “We congratulate Sedibeng for the best district performance. I should state that in the Free State, Thabo Mofutsanyana distric led that province, Cradock led in the Eastern Cape and Vhembe district has the best result in Limpopo.”

“No district in the Western Cape performed below 80 percent,” Motshekga had also announced.

The Western Cape was the top performing province and achieved an 84.7 percent pass rate, followed by Gauteng in second place at 84.2 percent. The Free State came third with 81.6 percent.
