SUNLAND celebrities had some words of wisdom for the matric Class of 2016.
Queen of gospel Rebecca Malope said everyone who was in matric should carry on working on their education.
“The fact they reached matric shows they did their best and they must carry on whether they passed or failed,” she said.
Actress and former Miss Teen SA Celeste Khumalo told Daily Sun: “Matric is only the first step. Life is not easy after matric, so they must keep pushing for their dreams.”
She said those who did not pass must not see it as the end of the world.
“There are many programmes that can help them become repeat matriculants,” she said.
Singer Candy “Tsa Mandebele” Mokwena congratulated those who passed.
“Focus on making your dreams a reality and work hard towards that. If you did not pass, sit down and reflect on where you went wrong and work on fixing it when you repeat matric.”
Rapper Gigi Lamayne believes education is the key to bigger opportunities.
“I encourage matriculants to work towards their dreams and making life better for all in the country,” said Lamayne who holds a degree in media studies.
Actor and comedian Siya- bonga Radebe said those who did not reach the pass mark should try again.
“If you don’t make it, pick yourself up and try again,” he said.
DJ Shimza added: “To those who made it, I say, nice one! Carry on with schooling so that you can land your dream job.”
