THE Computer College Class of 2016 graduated at a ceremony held at Mbango Valley on Saturday. The graduates sported their best outfits as they mounted the podium and collected their certificates.

The guest speaker was Small Enterprise and Development Agency Umgungundlovu branch manager Phumlani Mike Zondo, who spoke about life after graduation.

“Some of you will have difficulty in finding employment, given the country we live in, however, it is not what happens to you that defines you, but how you choose to respond to what happens to you,” said Zondo.

He encouraged graduates to look for inspiration from within.

“If you’re employed be excellent in your job, don’t be an eight-to-four person, don’t come at 8.05 and don’t be the first one to leave office. Be committed and do your job in such a way that you’re irreplaceable.”

College lecturer Jerome Cembi said he was proud of his students. “This is an exciting day for all of us,” said Cembi.

Principal Urvashnee Singh said she was pleased with the performance of students: “It is the aim of the college to provide individuals with opportunities to acquire qualifications that foster greater employability. Education is one of the most valuable assets you will acquire during your lifetime.”
