The Assistant Schools Liaison Officer from the University of Venda, Justice Lebopa outlined more information about programmes that are offered within different schools at Univen including Admission Point Scores.
The guest speaker from Univen School of Education, Professor Takalani Mashau motivated learners about the importance of education as a key to change a life. “You must read until it hurts for you to have a bright future. In most cases as leaners you fail because you consider rights without responsibility, business without ethics, science without humanity, politics without principles and education without heart,” he said.
