THESE 10 matriculants succeeded with flying colours and for their hard work, they received Sibanye-Stillwater bursaries last week.

The matrics are all from schools near the company’s operating areas in Gauteng, the Free State and the North West.

The annual Sibanye-Stillwater Bursary Awards allow pupils to study at the university of their choice nationwide. The bursary is a blessing because the committee focuses on high-scoring youths who would not normally be able to afford to study at a university.

The bursary has benefitted more than 280 matric students at a cost of more than R37 million to the company since the programme was started.

Mbali Magudulela, vice-president of human resource development at Sibanye-Stillwater, said:”They company believes that education is an important pillar which addresses growth and sustainability of communities as well as the legacies of historical inequality which create a positive contribution to the country.

The award event took place at Libanon Business Park in Westonaria, West Rand. It was attended by students, parents, teachers, representatives of provincial departments of education and Sibanye-Stillwater executives.
