    Sasol awards top achievers of 2018

    Well done to the Class of 2018 and all the best for the future.

    On Thursday night, 10 January, Sasol and Osizweni hosted the top achievers of the class of 2018 and the 24th annual merit awards at Graceland Hotel, Casino and Country Club.
    A strong wind blowing outside blew away the worries and fears for the top achievers to enjoy and bask in the night’s celebrations of their achievements. It was an honour for the Bulletin to have been invited and to have experienced the celebration of these students. Not only were the top achievers in Dipaleseng, Govan Mbeki and Lekwa municipalities honoured, but also the teachers from these municipalities. Sometimes the teachers are forgotten, but that night these educators and their dedication were remembered and honoured. The night’s programme was hosted by Nivashnee Francois and funny guy Lolo Mokoena aka Abuti Lolo. The two hosts welcomed the students and teachers, rallied up the crowd and encouraged everyone to relax, sit back and bask in the celebrations! Mr Simon Baloyi, Acting Senior Vice President, Secunda Synfuels Operations, opened the event and welcomed all. The starter was served with live entertainment by the band, Music 97, a local band that has been performing with top artists such as Lira. The motivational speaker, Prince Ndlela, spoke about how to manage success and he was followed by Cllr Sakhile Mahlangu, MMC Special Projects, Govan Mbeki.
    After all the formalities were dealt with, the stars of the evening were called up to shine brightly. The first stars were the best educators of the three municipalities. They were lauded and awarded for their dedication to Mathematics and Physical Science.
    The next generation of stars was awarded next. Their shining smiles looked like the Milky Way in the dim lighting. Sasol released the following statement to the media:
    “A total of 82 learners received merit award certificates, as well as cash prizes for their outstanding performance.
