WOZA MATRICS | 2020 catch-up kicks off on 1 September
The class of 2020 has been seriously disrupted by school closures as a result of COVID-19. While all learners have lost school time, this is most acutely felt by Grade 12s where results are important for career and university choices and being able to enter the job market, and where the content to be covered is fixed and externally examined. Woza Matrics is a free-to-air television initiative aimed at supporting the matric learners of 2020. Learners and parents are encouraged to make use of this support which covers a range of subjects.

HOW IT WORKS
Woza Matrics was launched in August by the Department of Basic Education, assisted by the National Education Collaboration Trust.
The 12-week Woza Matrics campaign starts on 1 September 2020 and will support Grade 12 learners in the build-up to their final matric exams by providing quality educational content across various subjects. Six subjects will be offered in the initial phase:
A wide-reaching communications campaign will ensure learners, parents and teachers across the country know exactly where to find the subject and content they need each week. Please visit www.wozamatrics.co.za for more information.
SATRIX SUPPORTS EDUCATION
“Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today” ~ Malcolm X
Whilst Satrix is a company which focuses on investing and growing wealth for its clients, we understand that at the heart of wealth creation and empowerment is education. When the chips are down and the world looks dark, you can still focus on your education and trust that a good one will unlock a world of opportunities for you.
2020 is Satrix’s 20th anniversary year. It was always a key focus for us to “pay it forward” this year, acknowledging the support we’ve received from so many South African investors over the years. The Woza Matrics initiative is an opportune and timeous way for us to make an impactful difference in the remainder of 2020.
Helena Conradie, Satrix CEO says “This pandemic has affected the world in so many ways and as 2020 unfolded, urgent needs arose in many new spaces. Education wasn’t a new one, just the way it is to be delivered. While every school year is important, Matric is a make-or-break year for many learners and Satrix is proud to play a part in supporting them in this final stretch of 2020.”
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
The positive impact of Woza Matrics will be realised when the matriculants of 2020 receive their National Senior Certificates timeously. Thank you to all sponsors who are making Woza Matrics possible.
