Principal's Message

Welcome Address, 2020

Ms Ntombizodwa Dangazele - Acting Principal

January, 2020

A new year marks a new starting point and opens a new chapter. On behalf of the College Management, I am delighted to welcome you back to EWC in the academic year 2020.

2019 has been marked by noteworthy achievements. As we reflect, I believe that we have many reasons to have enormous pride in our achievements and look forward with enthusiasm to the future. Just to mention a few outstanding achievements:

  • The launch of the Media Centre, Hall and Staff room at Boksburg Campus;
  • Expansion of the Carpentry and Fabrication workshops at Tembisa campus;
  • Construction of a Welding workshop at Tembisa Campus;
  • The upgrade of the Bridge at Alberton campus;
  • Construction of lock up garages for six vehicles at Tembisa campus.

For EWC to rise to prominence over its 17 years of existence since the merger has been the result of the contribution of dedicated staff (Academic and Support staff) and the active engagements with donors, partners and supporters from all walks of life. However, more importantly, the Management and the College Council have all played an enormous role in ensuring that EWC remains the Fountain of Knowledge it is today.

Considering all our achievements, it is significant that we aim for another step up in terms of developments and successes. That will mean that we need to shove even harder to continue growing our College reputation, increasing relevance and leverage on establishing new partnerships with industry and other stakeholders as well as strengthening the partnerships we currently have. That will surely pave a path for us to be a leading College. Let us keep on pushing and striving towards excellence, bearing in mind that our collective efforts will definitely yield good results.

I urge you to offer your skills, knowledge, dedication and reliability. I, therefore, invite you all to join me in our tenacity to move on a path that will raise the image of our College and make us relevant to the society that we serve. Lastly, I feel honoured for the trust bestowed in me to lead a team of endowed and dedicated people. I urge each one of you to work tirelessly to ensure that we make progress on the elements of our vision and strategic plan so that we can deliver the goal that we have set.

Let us all make 2020 a year of maximizing our gains and making inroads into areas that will further boost our efforts in ensuring that we provide excellent and quality education.

May the year be productive and bring to each of you lots of love. I convey my very best wishes to you all. Let us all shift our last year's momentum into this academic year.
