SRC Inauguration

21 May, 2021

Executive and Broad Management team; SSS and Marketing staff; our SRC, who are our special guests today; to everyone present here today - receive my greetings and my best regards.

Today, the 21st May 2021, will remain a great day in the history of EWC. It is a day on which we are hosting our first ever SRC inauguration ceremony where SRC members will take oath, or pledge to serve the students with dignity and prudence.

Ladies and gentlemen, let me take this opportunity to congratulate all of you, our 2021 SRC, for having been elected by your fellow students so that you may represent them at all our six (6) campuses in Alberton, Boksburg, Germiston, Kathorus, Kempton park and Tembisa. All these students at our campuses have put their vote of confidence in you. When students elected you, they bestowed their trust in you, to serve them with respect, kindness, humility and honesty. You should always remind yourself that students did not elect you for self-recognition, self-development and self-enrichment.

You should always bear in mind, for you to be in office, you are not there for your own student formations. You are not here to serve SASCO, EFF student command, PASMA, DASO and other formations. You are here to serve the entire student body equally, regardless of which formation they are affiliated to.

Serving all the students without hesitation and with dedication and determination will evidently show that EWC is not a political organisation. It is an organisation that stands for, and by, the truth, honesty and evidence. It is an institution where debates and engagements are not politically influenced; and where decisions and resolutions are taken based on the voice of reason, not informed by the numbers.

SRC, you are now in the leadership. Some of you could be in the leadership for the first time. Do not shake like a leaf and tremble with fear thinking of how are you going to lead the students of this gigantic college. I can assure you that you are going be great leaders, like Moses, the great leader in the great Book. You should learn from Moses, who led the Israelites. He led without experience but became an exceptional leader.

You should note that the qualities required for leadership are not cultivated in a day. But with time and patience, you can earn such qualities. Leaders who possess great leadership qualities have learned and earned them with time. Remember, leadership is placing the benefits of others first. It is thinking for your fellow students and linking your individual goals to the goal of the student community. If you do not have the skill of listening, now it is time to learn to listen, since listening is a great tool that enhances great leadership. Remember, God gave us two ears to listen and one mouth to speak, which means that we should listen twice as much as we speak.

Ladies and gentlemen, let me stress that history is filled with stories of various types of leadership and great leaders, but all reflected one common trait, which is selflessness. We should take our cue from great leaders such as Mahatma Gandhi, Martin King Luther and our own Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela. They led their people selflessly. They never moved from their objectives. They were focused on their end goals and they never allowed them to be derailed. In the same way, I urge you to focus on your studies, which is primarily why you are here at the college. In this regard, lead from the front and let your fellow students follow.

You should note that the real essence of leadership is achieved when a leader is focused on the needs of the followers and aims to accomplish them. So, the needs of the students is education. Gratify that need.
