A Port Elizabeth high school teacher has produced a handbook aimed at helping Grade 12 pupils make smarter decisions and improve their life skills.

Don’t Be Fooled – Make Smart Decisions is the title of the book penned by Grey High School teacher Simon Sonderup which is aimed at empowering pupils to make better decisions about life after school as young consumers and to avoid making costly decisions later on in their lives.

The book’s first edition was produced in June last year and distributed to Grey’s Grade 12 pupils in October. It looks at 18 topics like medical aid, buying a car, managing debt, buying a property and how to create a professional curriculum vitae, to name a few.

It is to be distributed again to all matriculants at Grey, but the book can be used by any individuals with just enough critical information to make good decisions.
