“Books before boys because boys bring babies”
these were the words of advice that Sibusiso Leope, popularly known as Dj Sbu, a media personality, businessman and philanthropist, gave the learners of Palm Ridge Extension 6 Secondary School during his motivational talk at the school recently.
Dj Sbu and his team under the Sibusiso Leope Education Foundation they visited the school to motivate the learners. He said higher grades should help those behind them such as grade 12 to help grade 11 and grade 11 to help grade 10 going down.
“We understand the township background as we are from the townships and some of us we were raised by single unemployed parents. We know how it is to be poor and today we are proud because we understood that the future was in our books,” said Dj Sbu.
He said they should love themselves and be willing to do extra classes for the sake of their success.
Ntombi Ngcobo, a media personality and Metro FM presenter also encouraged the learners to be humble and remain focus. “You should decide on what you want to be in life. Employment opportunities are always available but you have to choose correct subjects that will be your gate way to your chosen career,” she said.
Themba Lukhele, a businessman and a motivational speaker who is an ex-convict also advised learners not to be misled by their friends as a result of peer pressure.
The learners and teachers were delighted and motivated to have celebrities visiting their school and they appreciated their presence.
