Students at Letlole Mosielele Junior Secondary School in Thamaga and Seolwane Primary School have been urged to strive for excellence in the academic and non-academic activities. This was said by the Head of Public Relations at the Ministry of Youth, Sport and Culture, Kristian Mmusi last week when addressing students of the two schools.

Students at Letlole Mosielele Junior Secondary School in Thamaga and Seolwane Primary School have been urged to strive for excellence in the academic and non-academic activities. This was said by the Head of Public Relations at the Ministry of Youth, Sport and Culture, Kristian Mmusi last week when addressing students of the two schools.

When addressing Letlole Mosielele students who were about to start the junior certificate examinations, Mr Mmusi encouraged them to study hard so that they can be ready for the challenges ahead. "Everyone is excellent nowadays. What you need to aim for is to be exceptional so that you make a mark in everything you do. That way you are on the road to success," he said.

The Thamaga junior school had called Mr Mmusi, Mr Albert Tamado, President of the Scripture Union and Mimie Modimakwane of Yarona FM to come and give motivational talks to the students and encourage them to do well in the coming examinations. Ms Modimakwane could not make it as she had an emergency.

Mr Mmusi went on to brief students about the services that are offered at the Ministry of Youth, Sport and Culture. These include the ever popular Youth Development Fund, Arts and Culture Grant, Constituency Sport tournaments and the Sesigo Project to name but a few. Students asked questions which were answered by all the panelists

Seolwane Primary School tops Palapye North Region

Still on the subject of addressing students to sensitise them about the services and programmes offered at the Ministry of Youth, Sport and Culture, Mr Mmusi travelled to Seolwane to address teachers, pupils and parents at the Primary School Leaving Examinations victory celebrations.

Seolwane Primary students obtained position 1 in the Palapye North region beating 17 other primary schools for AB and ABC grades.

Mr Mmusi gave a motivational talk to students and parents on the importance of effective partnerships for an informed and educated nation. He encouraged parents and teachers to continue supporting each other for the success of their children's educational journey.

On other issues, the Head of Public Relations at the Ministry of Youth, Sport and Culture encouraged students and the public to utilise Government programmes aimed at improving their livelihoods. These include the Youth Development Fund, Arts and Culture Grant, Constituency Sport tournaments, Constituency Art tournaments and others.

The students of the two schools enjoyed the motivational talks and promised to take their academic work seriously and to utilise their talents whenever possible so as to sustain their livelihoods
