5 January 2016 - At the Ministerial Breakfast hosted at Vodaworld this morning the Minister of Basic Education, Angie Motshekga, thanked the parents and the Top Achievers of the ‪#‎ClassOf2015‬ for being the children that they are.

She said that these Top Achievers have excelled amongst the biggest number of learners writing matric ever, with exams that were tougher than in previous years. Now the Minister's expectations of the Top Achievers are very high: they have the brains to take the country forward, economically, socially and politically.

In their speeches both Deputy Minister Enver Surty and Vodacom Chief Officer: Corporate Affairs, Maya Makanjee referred to the long term partnership between the Department of Basic Education and Vodacom which is based on trust and shared objectives to support education to make the digital leap into the 21st century.
