Realogile school pocketed a 50 000 R check, thanks to the Vincent Tshabalala Fund. It achieved the best Matric past rate (74 % from 65 % in 2011) in Alex. Minerva lost its 2011 crowne and achieved a 69 % pass rate. But it stayed number 1 for the number of distinctions.

“The teachers and the learners must be in class on time and for the entire school day,” stressed Paul Mashatile, minister of Arts and culture and chairperson of the Fund, who added that “hard work does not start in Gr 12 and parents must take a keen interest in the studies of their children”.
