Rolling out: PROJECT 5: Ur GPS during and beyond Matric

Madge du Preez has permission from the Western Cape Education Department (WCED) to approach principals and their Governing bodies. It will also help if parents and retired teachers can become part of the project.

The author says:

UR GPS during and beyond Matric is the title of my new book that I am currently working on. It is an inspirational interactive tool that will allow each and every matriculant to exit into the world with more confidence than before. This is a much needed book/guide for high school learners and it will reach them if we work together as nation builders!’

Madge was prompted to write this book based on the research that she has done on the challenges that first-year students experience and face as they enter the tertiary environment.

GPS = Gateway to Personal Success

Six lessons = 246 pages.
