GARDEN ROUTE NEWS - For the past few years, some grade 12 learners were offered the opportunity to extend their matric examination over more than one year, a programme known as More Examination Opportunities (MEO or Second Chance Matric).
MEO candidates who registered for certain subjects in the National Senior Certificate (NSC) examination in October/November 2018, can now make use of additional tutoring at Knysna Secondary School and George Secondary School to prepare them for the examination.
Subjects offered are Afrikaans Home Language, Business Studies, Economics, Geography, Life Sciences, Mathematical Literacy, Mathematics and Physical Sciences.
In addition, Business Studies, Life Sciences and Mathematical Literacy will also be offered in Mossel Bay at Hillcrest Secondary School and Bridgton Secondary School in Oudtshoorn.

A full program with dates and times of different classes are available at the above mentioned four schools or at the education office in the four towns mentioned above.
