The JB Marks Education Trust Fund will hold its 5th Annual Career Expo at Toevlug Primary School, Ventersdorp, in North West Province. The school is next to the JB Marks reburial site.

The event will take place from the 25th to 26th of April 2016.

The Department will ensure that 6000 grade 12 learners from 20 high schools from Tlokwe area will attend the Expo over the two days.

Over the last 19 years, it has continued unabated to fulfil this need by providing tuition for members of the NUM and their families, achieving meaningful change and capacity-building through improved education. The Fund has enabled 924 bursars to graduate with mainstream tertiary qualifications (including 70 medical doctors) and disbursed R194 million to over 2000 beneficiaries, in the current year ( (2016) 200 bursaries were awarded making a total of 750 students still in the pipeline.

The media is invited to attend and cover the event.
