Alumni Profile of Omphile Modibela, was also known as Spookie and Miss G.

I started at Tsogo High School in 1995 in standard 5 (Grade 7) and finished my matric in 1999. Earlier, I attended Isaac Mokwena Primary School in Mothotlung. Further I went on to attend Wits University (2000 -2004) where I obtained a degree in Chemical Engineering then Unisa (2006-2010) where I have just recently obtained my LLB degree.

Currently, I am working at an Intellectual Property Law firm, Spoor & Fisher, as a candidate patent attorney. I expect to be admitted as an attorney before the end of the year, where after I will be a qualified patent attorney. My job mainly involves obtaining patent protection for inventions (mainly inventions in the pharmaceutical, chemical, metallurgical, agricultural, paper industries) in South Africa and internationally, identifying whether certain products or processes are protected by way of patents, and if so, advising on the validity of such patents and whether clients can launch a product or processes without infringing such patents. On other occasions I have also been involved in Intellectual Property audits and due diligence.

Currently, I work as a curator in a cape town based art gallery – Michael Stevenson.

Gallery artists include South African greats such as Pieter Hugo, Nicholas Hlobo, Zanele Muholi, Penny Siopis, Berni Searle and Nandipha Mntambo among others. The gallery functions as the artists support base – from the conception of artworks, through the production and beyond the exhibition phase. Most importantly, we help sell their products to reputable collectors and institutions as well as insure that their art is marketed in art circles around the world.

Alumni Profile of Botlhale Mabatshidi Nong

I started at Tsogo High School, in Std. 6, in 1982 and matriculated in 1986.I had a number of nicknames while there. was called “die ou boemelaar” (the old bag/homeless person) from this Afrikaans fictional piece we read in Ms Letebele’s class – because I carried a HUGE green bag with ALL my books and dictionaries, a thesauraus (English, Afrikaans and Setswana) and Bible in it. I was also called BoMaNo (the first two letters of my names). Even though I now have a degree in Sports Science, I did not participate in a lot of sporting activities except for karate, which was offered for a few months in the middle years of my time at Tsogo and drum majorettes, which ALL female students were forced to join – I hated this so much! It seemed to me that all the people participating in the major and most popular sports offered (netball, soccer, volleyball etc) were some of the most popular people at school – and I was not one of those. I did a bit of debating, theater and music (but these faded out pretty much as soon as they started). Our librarian started a few interesting “book and reading circle” type of activities that I also participated

Much earlier I did my Sub A in Meadowlands, Soweto, Johannesburg and the rest of primary and middle school at: Lesego Primary School and then Tswelelang Middle School in Zone 4, Ga-Rankuwa, Pretoria
