The Botswana Medical Aid Society (Bomaid), sponsored Gosemama’s Junior Secondary School prize giving ceremony. The ceremony was held on Friday the 8th September 2017 at Goo-Tau and it was officiated by Bomaid Principal Officer Mr Moraki Mokgasana.
Bomaid’s gesture to sponsor the school was in appreciation of its performance and all its endeavours to excel, with ‘Excellence’ being one of Bomaid’s core values. In addition, it was an effort by the organisation to carry its mandate of being a caring corporate citizen by supporting one of the nation’s core pillars, ‘an educated and informed nation’. The sponsorship aimed to celebrate excelling students and teachers, in recognition of their focus in education and achieving their optimal goals.
Speaking on the day, the Head of School of Gosemama JSS Mrs Tebogo Mack, gave a review of the school’s sterling performance in academics, arts and sports. She further appealed to organisations, including non-governmental, to partner with their institutions (schools) to encourage and support their efforts in raising funds for school developments, academic performance and commended Bomaid for its effort.
In his address, Mr. Moraki Mokgosana encouraged students to focus on their studies, noting that being a top achiever results in endless opportunities in career choices and personal development. He congratulated the students who have excelled in their vocations and encouraged them to keep on with the outstanding performance.
In closing, he commended the School Head and the teachers for the holistic approach in ensuring that students are encouraged to excel in all facets, such as the art department being a stellar performer at the national level as well as sports and not only in academia.
