Waterberg District Executive Mayor, Morris Mataboge, expressed his elation at the improved Grade 12 provincial matric results.
The region moved a notch up from fourth position in 2015 to second in 2017 in the province.
The mayor singled out hard work put in by a cross-section of stakeholders.
Mataboge was speaking on the occasion of the event to celebrate the results and give recognition to those who did exceptionally-well from across the region.
The event was held at Forever Resorts in downtown Bela-Bela on Friday, 12 January.
Mataboge cautioned that the Waterberg was still hovering under 70% in terms of overall performance, adding a lot more needed to be done to push for an even better percentage.
“Waterberg District matriculants were fortunate and privileged to have been nurtured in a district which strives for success, embraces diversity and sharpens creativity,” he explained.
Learners in the region who sat for their matric exam in 2017 totalled 6068, with 4214 candidates obtaining a pass rate, and 1854 failing their exams.
Waterberg District managed to obtain second position at provincial level.
