Department of Physics continues to encourage rural scholars to enroll for Maths and Science.

Posted on October 19, 2009

The Department of Physics’ sponsorship of this event illustrated its support of the strategic plan of the University of Pretoria entitled ‘Innovation Generation: Creating the future, 2007 – 2011’, which is based on eight strategic thrusts that permeate all aspects of university life, inter alia local impact and interfaces whereby the community benefits.

As Dichoeung is a rural community, most of the attendees were curious about enrolling for Mathematics and Physical Sciences at the higher educational institution. Of all the subjects children are encouraged to study at school, learners hate studying Mathematics and Physical Science most.

Learners believe studying the science stream will make them confused and give them headaches, but they do not realise that if they are confused they are thinking as well. The Head of the Department of Physics, Prof Malherbe, encouraged the learners to study science to better their future.

Seloane Kagiso from Lehwelere Matlala Secondary School was the overall winner in both the Mathematics and the Physical Science competition.

The Tsimanyane Circuit Manager, Mr Mohlapamaswi, the event organiser, Mr Maisela Morongwa Moubjane, and students from the UP’s Taaibos residence also honoured the event with their presence.
