Science promoted in schools

GRADE 12 pupils who do physical science at Umzimkhulu schools were told about career opportunities at an event hosted to mark science week at DRC Senior Secondary in Umzimkhulu on August 2.

Speakers encouraged schools to teach physical science and pupils were told about opportunities in engineering, forensics, statistics, architecture and the Department of Education.

Zukiswa Petele, one of the pharmacists from Umzimkhulu, encouraged pupils to work hard to occupy the field of science.
