Uit die hoof se kantoor
As ek ‘n terugblik gee op die jaar wat verby is, is ek voorwaar baie trots op die onderwysers en leerlinge van Hoërskool Ficksburg wat op baie terreine uitgeblink het.
It is possible for learners of Ficksburg High School to have the same access of knowledge at this school as the learner in the most affluent schools. Imagine the revolutionary democratizing potential this can bring.
Imagine the enormous benefits to our economy, our society, all learners of Ficksburg High School can master in the 21st century and the fourth industrial revolution. We are increasingly facing a serious skills shortage in our country. It is a rare privilege to be active in fighting this skill drain. At Ficksburg High we aim for excellence, not only academic excellence but also instilling true, employable skills in our learners. Our technical department is crucial to this.
To the class of 2020, a big congratulations to each of you. You made it to the finish line. But you also made it to the starting line of your next race. We say good-bye and good luck. To the rest of us, just keep trying!
Never give up! Because the only person that can stop you, is you!
Dankie aan ons Vader, vir U genade en seën.
Mnr. Hendrik van Zyl
