Well wishes for Matriculants 2013
To our Grade 12 learners of 2013, you have come to the end of your twelve year school journey.A journey that has seen you grow from an insecure preschoolers to the young adult that you have now become. We wish you well as you undertake this final lap of this race, which is also the beginning of the next chapter of your life. To the parents and teachers who continue to support our learners, we say a heartfelt thank you. Your hard work and dedication does not go unnoticed.
Matriculants, always follow your dreams no matter what! Giving up is so very easy and always an option, but always rather strive for success. Remember, success is not a secret, but only the results of preparation, hard work and learning from past mistakes. Continue to study hard, stay focused and success will be yours at the end of the day. The recipe for success is simply this: study while others are sleeping, work while others are doing nothing, prepare while others are playing and dream while others are wishing. Good luck and all the best.

The Lekwa Local Municipality reported that it experienced water challenges in Ward 1, 5, 7 and 8. The Municipality then introduced interim plans to try and solve the problem. Amongst the interim solutions was to alternate water supply between Meyeville, Sakhile ext 4 (Rooikopen), some parts of old Sakhile Township. We also connected the Kieser supply line to Stanfield Hill, which reduced the demand of water from the square reservoir.
The plan has yielded positive results in that the supplying of water to the mentioned areas/wards has improved and most households are able to access water. The battle has not been won yet since there are few households in Ward 5 which reported that they still do not access water. The municipality is continuing to supply water in those areas with water trucks.
The project to install a pipeline that will supply water directly to the affected reservoir is being implemented. Efforts to transfer monies from other projects to fix our water treatment works is being undertaken to make sure that the National, Provincial and Local Government priority of supplying clean water to every house hold by 2014 February is realized.
The Municipality conveys its gratitude to the Lekwa communities for the perseverance, support and working together during the crisis. We promise that we as a Municipality, are all working tirelessly to resolve these problems permanently.
WATER IS LIFE, SANITATION IS DIGNITY.
