MEC for Education
Ms Barbara Creecy enriches Horizon Boys
On the 7th of May 2013, the MEC Ms Barbara Creecy met with our Grade Twelve learners to encourage and enrich our learners with valuable, academic advice and to empower matriculants in particular. Ms Creecy stressed the importance of education and stated that education is a means of enhancing the wellbeing and quality of life for our society as a whole. Furthermore, Ms Creecy spoke to the boys in a very personal manner as she incorporated her own experiences of being a mother to children in matric as well as her own experiences as a student. The boys were encouraged to study with passion and to follow their passion as she believes that all should leave behind a legacy. Ms Creecy encouraged our learners to question their purpose in life and what impact they plan on leaving on day. She further encouraged our learners to embrace this year and to ensure that no distractions get in the way of their studies. Thus, parent support is vital. MEC also wanted all learners to think positive and to ensure that they get all the support they need, be it academic, emotional as well as spiritual. Learners should be able to debrief especially during this stressful year of Matric. Ms Creecy further enhanced that self-discipline is vital to achieve and that with self-discipline – educational discipline becomes easier. She challenged learners to be better citizens and to make a valuable contribution to the economic growth of the country as a whole. It was a stirring experience to meet the MEC and we thank her for the opportunity of ensuring our learners know that they have support not only from our parents and staff but most importantly from the MEC, Ms Creecy and her department as a whole.
