A very good afternoon.
My task is an easy one – to say, “Thank you.”
Nine years ago, at my first Diploma Ceremony, the numbers we had were not so many and it would not have warranted this kind of venue in size, but today, it is overflowing – making us to think out of the box.
This event could not have been possible if it was not for the students – actually the college exists because there are students. Thanks for standing in branding “EWC” and making us proud.
My many thanks to the staff that work so tirelessly in and out of class.
Helen Keller once said, “The World is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker.”
To my dear students, this is what you are saying to yourselves:
O Captain! My Captain! Our fearful trip is done,
The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won,
The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
The ship is anchor’d safe and sound, its voyage closed and done,
Exult O shores, and ring O bells! – Walt Whitman
Technical and Vocational, Education and Training colleges in South Africa have entered an exciting space. Along with changes, colleges are more vulnerable to external influences. Economic forces, i.e. escalating costs and shifting of resources, are some of the factors that have forced colleges to be more effective and efficient and to re-examine what we do.
Government, professional bodies, industry and commerce and other stakeholders are demanding greater accountability. These have increased demand for participation, changing student’s and lecturer’s characteristics and aspirations. The more time and energy students invest in educationally purposeful activities, the more they gain – and today we see the results thereof.
As a college, EWC has adopted the following as its corporate motto:
If you cannot imagine it, you cannot do it.
We believe in imagining the possibilities – to avoid complacency.
Let us remember that Teaching and Learning is the core business of the college – we exist to promote it. Learning is not confined to the classroom – it occurs in many contexts and in different forms. The richesy learning environment always produces a clear coherent set of educational purposes and outcomes. This is what we see today – and it is for these reasons that I wish to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude to every man and woman in the college who made this possible. I am indebted to you.
