I would like to thank the hon Malgas for her statement in relation to the matric examination.
But just to add that, in addition to the complex and comprehensive system that we have put in place, we have provided opportunities for Grade 10, 11 and 12 learners by providing them with examples of examination papers. We have a website where past papers can be downloaded and we've initiated spring classes, as well as weekend classes to assist those learners in areas where the performance has not been optimal.
In addition, just to share with the House, between 18 and 21 September, we would have a phenomenal experience in the country, where more than 7 million children would be sitting for the annual national assessment test on literacy and numeracy. In other words, each child in Grade 1 to 6, as well as all children in Grade 9 will be writing the literacy and numeracy test. The results will then be provided to the parents by means of an engagement between the class teacher and the parents to ascertain where intervention should take place. We believe that this would assist us significantly in our endeavour to improve our literacy and numeracy capacity within the system as a whole. Thank you very much.
