On Saturday 8 Nov, the Khanya Maths and Science Club ended its year, with the annual prize-giving. Learners from grades 8-11 were awarded science-related books and certificates in recognition of their attendance on Saturday mornings.
Dr David Khanye, a lecturer in the Department of Chemistry was the guest speaker, and he encouraged parents to take a keen interest in the education of their children. He paid tribute to his mother and grandmother who prioritized the education of their children so that he now has a PhD in Chemistry and his brother is an engineer.
The Khanya Maths and Science Club will start again on 21 February 2015 and is looking forward to renewed energy and new learners participating.
