Report Back: Tsogo Career Expo 2013

Dear Presenters, Alumni & Friends,

The Tsogo Alumni Society and Tsogo Secondary School would like to thank you sincerely for attending our 5th Career & Study Expo on Friday 8th March 2013. The day benefited our learners tremendously and we thank you for taking your time to speak to them, educate them about application processes and impart some useful information as they look to enter the study and work arena in the coming months and years.

We made some feedback slides with some pictures from the day! We hope you’ll enjoy them.

You can view the slideshow here.

Each year we strive to improve the expo, your experience and value for Tsogo’s learners and as such, we greatly value your feedback. We would be really grateful if you could help us to improve our Career & Study Expo’s going forward by sending us an e-mail with responses to the following questions:

  • Was the Career Expo a valuable experience in your opinion?
  • Is there anything that you would like us to change about the structure of the Expo?
  • In your opinion, do you think your information was useful for all Grades (Grades 9 – 12)
  • Would you have liked to have spent more time with Grade 11 & 12 learners and less with lower grades?
  • Any other comments are appreciated

Should you have any further questions or comments, please send us an email (tsogoalumni.expo@gmail.com)

We look forward to having you again in March 2014.

Best regards,
Thabo Ncalo

Become a Tsogo Class Ambassador (July Alumni Society Update)

Volunteer, be the One

Anyone who matriculated at Tsogo High School between 1978 & 2009 and is willing to link up with old friends can volunteer to become a Class Ambassador (CA) …. (as long you remain committed to act as a liaison between the school / society and your old class mates!)

Click here to download more information

Tsogo Class Ambassadors are those individuals who volunteer to act as the liaison between the school/the alumni society and the individual’s own past matric class mates. Class Ambassadors (CAs) will be required to find, collect information/data and maintain regular contact with individuals from his/her matric year. CAs will in turn communicate vital information, requests and updates from the Tsogo Alumni Society and the school to their old class mates. CAs may also organise or assist in organising 5 year, 10 year, 15 year, etc. ‘class reunions’ as desired by members of that class year.

Lesego Phateng (Tsogo 2009)

Alumni News (AN): Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

 Lesego Phateng (LP):  Okay…I’m from Mmakau and I have an older brother who lives in Mafikeng. He’s been very helpful and supportive throughout my school years. I live with my mom and dad. You know – throughout my matric year my parents and I really got on well (smiles). They understood my study pressures and gave me the space and time to study which was great. My family has always been very supportive! I was at Morekolodi Primary and then went on to Tsogo. AN:

We’re talking to you because of your outstanding matric results. Was there a lot of pressure in your matric year?

 LP: Yes there was. At first I was a bit relaxed but the teachers at Tsogo really scared us. They told us that matric wasn’t easy and we had to work really hard. I think that pressure was good and it got us working. But to be honest – matric is really a build-up of work from previous years. Grade 12 to me was all about what we did in Grade 11 and other lower classes

Tshepo Maubane - Tsogo 2009

“OUTSTANDING!

The Pretoria News carried a story with the headline “Prime moment for a high achiever” on January 8th 2010 following the 2009 Matric Results’ release. It was about a matric learner from Ga-Rankuwa who obtained 8 distinctions in the matric exams last year. This high achiver is a young man known by everyone at Tsogo as Tshepo Maubane.

We celebrate Tsogo’s 35 years of excellence by bringing you  our conversations with two outstanding Class of 2009 matriculants. Our second honoured new alumna Ms. Lesego Phateng obtained 7 distinctions in 2009 and is one of the most inspiring and focused young women from our community.

Alumni Society Secretary Mr. Thabo Ncalo caught up with Mr. Maubane on campus in Hatfield, Pretoria and Ms. Phateng at her new Student Centre at University of Jhb. (RAU)  to find out how they achieved their amazing results and where they see themselves in the years to come.
