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.

Career Expo 2009 – Report Back

Dear Friends of Tsogo,

We are very excited to give you a report-back on the careers expo we held at the school on Saturday September 26th 2009. We attach some pictures from the event and some notes on the presenters and companies.
We wish to thank all academic institutions, companies and their representatives, donors, alumni, teachers, vice principal, guidance teacher & rest of the faculty, Sr. Colmcille and the school, learners and all who assisted in the careers expo. You all sacrificed time out of your Saturday to spend the day imparting your knowledge to the learners of Tsogo Secondary School – we thank you!
There is a proverb that says that “the best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago… the next best time is now!” We hope we have planted some trees of knowledge in the learners who attended the expo.
Thank you to all donors (esp. the Class of 1987 alumni group), supporters, online & social networking team, alumni society executive members  and all involved in putting this event together. We hope you’ll enjoy the pictures presented to you in this report-back. You can also visit the website and the ‘Tsogo Scholars Past & Present‘ Facebook page for more pictures and comments.
Thank you once again for your care, interest and support. We welcome any feedback, thoughts and your suggestions on how we can improve on future expos.
Kind regards,
Thabo Ncalo
Secretary
