How Mbilwi Secondary School in Limpopo keeps excelling in maths and science

Despite having overcrowded classrooms and poor infrastructure, Mbilwi Secondary School in Limpopo has once again come out tops in the fields of maths and science.

Principal Cedric Lidzhade says the school manages to stimulate interest in pure mathematics and has fast become South Africa's breeding ground for excellent future scientists, boasting an impressive matric pass rate of 95% or more every year for over a decade.

Top 2015 matriculant Hamandashe Mathivha made the school proud and received the national award for the best results in physical science and mathematics.

Hamandashe is the best learner in physical science, from Musina to Cape Town.

The teachers are very dedicated. They offered holiday classes and made sacrifices for us to learn and get the best help we need to maintain the excellent standard of the school.
