FORTUNE favoured Mildred Nasasery, a matric pupil at William Pescod High School in Kimberley, who won a bursary from ATTI for the 2025 academic year via a lucky draw.

Nasasery attended the Kimberley Academy of Excellence NPC’s 2024 career exhibition that took place at her school earlier this month.

The bursary that she won will enable her to pursue any course of her choice in 2025, courtesy of ATTI Computer Education and Training.

The career exhibition, held on April 13, was the second of its kind and attracted close to 350 matric pupils.

Participating schools included William Pescod High School, Floors High School, Kimberley Girl’s High School, Homevale High School, Tlhwahalang Secondary School, Banksdrift High School, Reakantswe High School and Emmanuel Secondary School.

Established in 2020, the Kimberley Academy of Excellence NPC is a non-profit organisation that strives to create opportunities for young individuals in education, business leadership, and personal and professional development.

The initiative was hosted in partnership with the Frances Baard District Department of Education and the Black Management Forum Student Chapter (Sol Plaatje University branch).

It aimed to motivate matric pupils to excel academically and also raise awareness about potential career paths after matriculation.

Other stakeholders that participated in the event were Sol Plaatje University, Auditor-General South Africa, Henrietta Stockdale Nursing College, ETDP SETA, University of South Africa, Stellenbosch University, Boston City Campus, ATTI Computer Education and Training, National Youth Development Agency and the State Information Technology Agency.

Teboho Mokoena, from Kimberley Academy of Excellence NPC, expressed his satisfaction with seeing the initiative going from strength to strength.

“I am quite happy with the progress and expansion thus far. Our second expo was better than our first, which was in 2022. So it does show that there is progress.

“Our exhibitors were impressed and learners had fun, but at the same time gained valuable information,” said Mokoena.
