Thabazimbi – Did you know that 1,058,699 Grade 12 learners wrote their exams in 2020? Across the country more than 45,000 markers have started grading the 14 million scripts at the 181 marking centres across the country.

Hoërskool Frikkie Meyer (HFM) has been chosen to be one of the locations dedicated to ensuring that the tests get graded within the 18 days allocated for this task. It is a great honour for the school – who is one of 29 schools in the province who were chosen.

Not only did the class of 2020 have to deal with class disruptions, a worldwide pandemic and adapting to the new normal, but some also had to deal with the stress of almost having to rewrite the maths and the science paper.

“We owe it not only to our Grade 12’s – but to the rest of the country. Last year was especially hard for the 2020 group and if we can play a part in helping them move on and start this new chapter in their lives, we are honoured to do so,” said HFM principal Colin Campbell.

The school hall and various classrooms will be used for the marking of nearly 29,000 business studies papers.
