From Our Principal
Can I extend a word of welcome to Ketlane primary school! This is my 19th year as the principal at Ketlane primary, and it feels like a second home. This is an exciting stage in the development of of Ketlane primary and I am confident that with hard work, dedication, and enthusiasm we will be able to confirm Ketlane's place amongst the top schools in the Republic of South Africa. The very first president of a free South Africa, Rolihlahla Nelson Mandela once declared:"Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world ". I enjoy nothing more than to work with parents, community leaders, teaching and support staff,and especially learners themselves to provide a quality education that will equip our children with everything that they need to lead successful, and happy lives. We are happy to inform you about the significant success in the 2022 academic year. At Ketlane primary we have created an environment where children enjoy learning, flourish and reach their potential. Out of the 15000 grade 6 learners in Vhembe West District, our very own Madzaga Rotondwa obtained positions 28 and 252 respectively. Our very own Maswanganyi Ngula, a grade 2 learner obtained position 1 in Xitsonga creative writing in Limpopo province; our under 13 soccer team were awarded silver medal in Elim tournament sponsored by Surat; our girls under 12 Chess, and Morabaraba teams obtained gold medals; and Mrs Shidzinga SE, an English fal grade 6 educator, has been crowned as the best English educator in Elim circuit. We look forward to another academically enriching and exciting school year, 2023, where we will continue to motivate, inspire and help our leaners achieve their academic goals. It is my heartfelt privilege to serve as the principal of this school family. I sincerely believe that a school environment that is collaborative draws on the strength of all stakeholders and fosters a positive school climate that makes a difference in the lives of our leaners.
