The event was part of the Trust’s matric improvement programme and its (PCT’s) continued sponsorship of learners from schools in Daveyton, Duduza, Kwa-Thema, Vosloorus, Bakerton and Wattville to attend Star Schools centres in Springs and Vosloorus.
Apart from getting the chance to find out more about courses offered by tertiary organizations like, Damelin College, Midrand Graduate Institute, Oakfields College, Capsicum Culinary Studio and the Universities of Johannesburg and the Witwatersrand they also received details on how to register at these institutions.
Learners like Thembi Moeketsane of Kwa-Thema, Khutso Magopale of Vosloorus, Lebogang Mofokeng of Daveyton, Silindile Ndabandaba of Duduza, Tshepiso Shai of Wattville and Nozuko Mqoma of Bakerton were also able to find out more about how to apply for student loans from financial institutions like Eduloan.
In addition they were also given a handy list of contact details for all major tertiary institutions situated across the country, as well as a useful list of contact numbers were they can apply for bursaries and study loans.
The successful businessman and CEO of the organization “Black Child Its Possible”, Billy-Guy Bhembe and his wife Mandi, also gave the learners an inspirational talk urging them to take action and start applying now for bursaries, loans and registering for what they want to study next year.
“Aim high and look for opportunities today that will help you achieve your goals later in life. Your personal best is what will set you apart from everyone else,” was some of the advice Billy-Guy, who was raised in Vosloorus, gave the youngsters.
