How The Cyril Ramaphosa Education Trust Dealt With Student’s Racist Attack

Surely we’ve all seen the video of the two ladies making racist comments on video one of their cellphone was stolen (if you haven’t, that’s a good thing, I won’t post it on here because- positive vibes only). After it started trending on social media people revealed that she was a student at The University of Pretoria, and later on, also a beneficiary of the CRET. Well, they released a statement and I commend them for dealing with this so swiftly. South Africa is no place for racists! Have a look at the press statement below:  “The Cyril Ramaphosa Education Trust (CRET) is aware of an offensive video of one of its students circulating on social media platforms. CRF and CRET condemn the abhorrent behaviour displayed in the video and has rescinded the student’s bursary with immediate effect. The CRET bursary programme has prided itself on its non-racial, non-discriminatory approach to supporting disadvantaged students across all races. In 2017 CRET supported a total of 66 students, with students coming from all provinces. Of the 66 students, 64 are black and 2 white. These students form part of the CRET family that is encouraged to rise above their circumstances, to become inspirational leaders and to give back to those less fortunate. We are devastated to learn that one of our own family members has disappointed us to such a degree particularly at a time when South Africa needs to be embracing its diversity. We will support any further action taken against this student, pending the outcome of a disciplinary inquiry by the University of...
Career guidance tips for high scholars

Career guidance tips for high scholars

  When it comes to talking about the future, some high school students are often clueless. Their inability to make a life-changing decision is becoming a serious issue, and most of these students are heading in the same direction because that appears to be the safest route. We need to change that by guiding them in the right direction. Here are some tips:   CHOOSING A CAREER YOU LIKE First of all, you should look into what you are good at or what are your likes. We all have hobbies but we don’t consider them as anything else besides a pass time or a way to entertain ourselves. If that is the case, then you should acknowledge that many people turn their hobbies into prosperous careers. A wise man once said “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” The benefit of doing so is that you will be able to love what you do and it’s a rare thing these days. EMPHASIZE ON THE SUBJECT THAT YOU TAKE THE MOST INTEREST IN You may consider most of the subjects boring or have no such interest for them but there is always that one subject that you love. That one subject can be a gateway to your dream life if you are willing to work on it. Suppose your favorite subject is biology. You could look forward to being a doctor or a biologist and you can become a chemical engineer if you like chemistry. The list goes on and on, there are vast career opportunities that are neglected by...
