First semester officially kicks-off!

Earlier this week, the Official Opening event took place on campus, marking the start of the new academic year. Although registration is scheduled to end on 24 March 2021, classes have begun. The cohort of students that are yet to register will be accommodated accordingly, to ensure they do not fall behind with their studies.

At the event, new and senior students gathered to listen to the Vice-Chancellor, Dr Erold Naomab, the Students’ Representative Council’s President, Pamela Gertze and various other motivational speakers.

Dr Naomab spoke extensively about the advancements in teaching and learning, in relation to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. “Being physically present in a lecture room is no longer the only learning option, hence we must embrace the future,” he said, adding that until further notice, the University will forge ahead with online teaching, complimented by face-to-face interventions.

This, he said, will be done under a strictly controlled operational environment in compliance with the national health and safety measures.

Gertze echoed similar sentiments, saying; “this is an opportunity to be part of something great, an opportunity to grow as we move out of our comfort zones.”

Melvin Angula, the Chief Commercial Officer of MTC and an alumnus of the Institution, was one of the speakers. He highlighted that passion combined with perseverance is the ultimate mental determination needed for a student to succeed in their endeavours.

Delivering the keynote address, Shiwomeho Kalla, the founder of Shiwa the Baker, a local baking business, spoke highly about turning challenges into opportunities.

Over the years, Kalla’s brand has become a force to be reckoned with.

She has expanded her business to not only selling sweet treats, but also empowering upcoming entrepreneurs by offering classes to people of all ages.
