"Today we are not only honouring and giving recognition to those teachers who have managed to motivate, inspire and produce good results in mathematics and physical science during the past 20 to 30 years, but, we are also honouring the memory of a great and humble African - a South African who became the father of the (Sowetan's) nation building initiative during the most turbulent time in the history of South Africa.

"We are honouring the memory and legacy of Aggrey Klaaste by giving recognition to those teachers who have engaged in outstanding practices, and who have contributed to quell the myths linked to maths and science as subjects in our schools." - Free State education department superintendent-general Mafu Solomon Rakometsi, speaking at the provincial finals of the 2008 Aggrey Klaaste Maths, Science and Technology Educator of the Year Award in Bloemfontein on February 28.
