"The personal success of Kamva Lengisi, the top matric at the Engen Maths and Science School (EMSS) in Cala in the rural Eastern Cape, will be South Africa’s gain, as he plans to attend Nelson Mandela University this year to chase his dream of becoming an engineer."
"Kamva, 17, who attended Cala Village Senior Secondary and grew up in Cala, joined the EMSS programme in grade 11. He beat 59 fellow matrics at the end of last year to take the top spot in the Cala EMSS class, scoring three distinctions overall, including 80% for maths.
Over the past two years, every Saturday Kamva attended EMSS supplementary classes, which helped to significantly boost his marks. “EMSS provided detailed maths and science explanations that enabled me to assist myself and others at school. The programme offers lots of support which helped to push me and attain the marks I wanted,” reflects Kamva."
