Kanye — A member of the presidential task force for vision 2036, Dr Lemogang Kwape, and former student of Seepapitso Senior School has challenged students at the school to compete to become the best they could be in their studies.

Dr Kwape, also the initiator of the annual chemistry award at the school, motivated the students during a morning assembly yesterday.

He said he was saddened by the fact that the school that had so far produced the second president Sir Ketumile Masire, Professor Thapelo Otlogetswe, Brian Mokopakgosi and Tebogo Sebego among others was on a decline with regards to academics.

The school got position 23 out of 32 in the last BGCSE results.

He said he was also concerned that the youth no longer had the same pride they used to have of going back to school during the day.

“Consider yourselves lucky to be associated with the school that has produced these great men who at some point stood where you are standing now as students.

You can also be counted among the best if you start with one step today,” he said.

With view to turn the school around, he pledged to sponsor a science quiz and a debate competition to encourage the students to compete.

He said the eventual winners would each get P2 500.

“Should this propel you to finish within the top 10 bracket, I will encourage all the alumni to give back to the school,”he said.

He also shared that the topics for the debate competition would be centred around Vision 2016 to encourage the students to own the national vision.

A student representative, Ms Bonolo Dithure said the initiative would help them work towards better results.

She said she was proud to be associated with the school that has produced some great sons and daughters of this nation.
