THE recently-held Motheo TVET College Award Ceremony which took place at the South Campus of the Motheo TVET College honoured those students who had put in the time and effort to become top achievers.

With a total of 62 students receiving distinctions and 80 students receiving their diplomas, the Motheo TVET College continues to groom students to become future leaders as it provides a gateway to employability and the assurance of both qualification and experience.

With every step of the way the college has nurtured and ensured quality education to the 1 464 students who received certificates, including best performers.

Dipiloane Phutsisi, principal of the Motheo TVET College, gave her heartfelt congratulations to the assembly who could barely contain their excitement.

Great applause and a standing ovation were given to one of the students who showed great determination despite her disability. Noziphiwo Malaku is a blind student who studied Marketing Management which is known to be one of the courses that requires creativity and design-focused individuals.

She broke the barrier of limitation by showing that disability was not meant to stop anyone from their calling. With 73% in Computer Practice N4 and 87% in Computer Practice N5 she is a perfect role model for anyone with a disability.

The principal’s award for the overall best performer went to Julian Roux. He received four distinctions X Drawing 79%, History of Art 87%, Jewellery Design 90% and Jewellery Manufacturing 83% X from the Visual Arts and Design Faculty, the programmes which require steadiness and precision.

For Lebohang Mlangeni graduating is a privilege and an honour.

“The feeling of receiving the certificate that opens your mind to endless possibilities the world can offer is irreplaceable.” Mlangeni, received a national certificate in Marketing Management and also receives experiential training at the Motheo TVET College Central Office to enable her to receive her diploma.

Phutsisi also congratulated the graduates by quoting the motivational words from Maya Angelou: “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away”.

With these words she saluted all the sponsors, partners and parents who had made the day possible.

“With great power comes great responsibility and therefore with the power that these graduates received in their national diploma and national certificates lies the great responsibility to change the world, “Phutsisi said.

“The Motheo TVET College provides the foundation that is essential not only for the development of the individual, but also adds value to the training of artisans of our country,” she concluded
