Careers & Study Expo
Thursday, 25th March 2010
Tsogo Secondary School – Mmakau Village
Tsogo Alumni 4th Annual Careers & Study Expo
Thursday 25th March 2010
Report By Thabo Ncalo
The first quarter in 2010 has been a productive one for the alumni society. We’re glad to report that our 4th Annual Expo was a great success! This year we managed to host 7 academic institutions and 12 companies / organisations and exposed all Tsogo Grade 9 to 12 learners (approximately 400 learners) to a range of careers and study fields.
In true Tsogo tradition the event opened with some melodic singing and prayer at assembly followed by a welcome address from Mr. Assi (school principal) . He welcomed all guests and alumni – and especially Mr. Thema who is the Circuit Manager (Bojanala Region) in the Department of Education.
The welcome address was followed by a brief address by Mr. Thabo Ncalo (Alumni society secretary) who spoke about the role of alumni at Tsogo and the importance of instilling a culture of giving-back. He urged the learners to “be inquisitive” and ask many questions as possible – both on the day and generally in life.
