MTN SA has awarded the top 183 matriculants with laptops and computers following the announcement of matric results on Monday by the Department of Basic Education.
“As a reward for their efforts and stellar results, MTN Foundation is handing over laptop computers to the top 33 achievers nationally, as well as providing laptops to the top 15 achievers in each province,” MTN said in a statement.
MTN added that the top 15 learners in the ICT (CAT and IT subjects) and special needs category, nationally, will also receive laptops.
“Each of the 183 achievers will also receive an MTN backpack filled with stationery,” said the network operator.
MTN SA Foundation’s general manager, Kusile Mtunzi-Hairwadzi, said the past year has tested the mettle of the matriculants, with leaners facing unprecedented challenges ahead of the biggest exams of their school careers.
“We congratulate them on achieving an outstanding national result despite the challenges,” added Mtunzi-Hairwadzi.
