Grace Smythe receives an award for her excellent results.

Alfred Duma Local Municipality held its Mayoral Matric Excellence Awards on Friday (January 20) at the Ladysmith Town Hall.

The purpose of the event was to reward the matric class of 2016 for the hard work and dedication they put into their matric studies.

Learners from various schools in Ladysmith who excelled in Grade 12 were called up on stage and were handed awards by Ladysmith Mayor Vincent Madlala, along with Deputy Mayor Thuli Mazibuko.

Ladysmith High School (LHS) learners took the top three positions: Grace Smythe took first position, Kashmira Mahadew second spot and Karishma Rampersadh third spot.

“It is a great honour to hand out these awards to students who have made the town of Ladysmith proud. We are gathered here to celebrate your excellence and the great results you have obtained,” said Mayor Madlala.

The municipality awarded 50 learners from schools in and around Ladysmith, which included Ladysmith High School, Dr Joseph Shabalala Secondary School, Windsor Secondary School, Emhlwaneni High School, Limehill High School and Steadville Secondary School.

Cheers from the crowd echoed throughout the Town Hall, in support of the excellence shown by the learners of 2016’s matrics.
