S.E.T. for socio-economic growth
The name of the school I went to is Mmankala Technical and Commercial High,a public school situated in Makapanstad, a rural area in North West Province. What is special about the school is that it is the only school in the area that offers technical subjects. During my matric year about 800 pupils were enrolled there, of which about 220 were matriculants.
One of our biggest challenges was that due to lack of resources we had to share some of the textbooks. This was difficult because one did not always have access to the textbook. What we did to overcome this is that we started a study group and this helped.
They should not waste any time and start applying as soon as possible, not only that but they should also be well aware of the requirements as per institution. I further want to advise them to apply for as many bursaries as possible.
I hope I will have obtained my degree in Electrical Engineering and be busy with postgraduate studies.
I realised in Grade 8 that I enjoyed science and mathematics more than other subjects because I used to pay more attention to these two subjects. I found them pretty interesting and they always made more sense than the rest. My high school Electrical Technology teacher, Mr RH Mulaudi, also played an important role in that he further triggered my interest in mathematics and science through his culture of teaching. He was always passionate to show us how things work, since the subject he is handling is more technical and scientific.
My brother inspires me a lot because he always shows great passion when doing something he loves.
I have chosen Electrical Engineering because I have always been fascinated with how electricity works. I am interested in electrical systems and I am motivated by technology and the application of physical sciences.
Great marks are accessible to every learner, one does not have to be a fast learner to obtain good grades. It all comes down to giving yourself as much time as you need to understand stuff because we all have different rates of understanding and grasping information.
