Our Career And Varsity life Awareness event for 2019 was held at Marude Secondary School. The programme started at 12:00 with an overall attendance of 367 people, with 30-40 people were Bono Foundation volunteers. The event had three sections, the motivation, career exhibition and online applications.
The first part of the program was Motivation. It started off with high school excellence speech by our very own Mashapha Fulufhelani. Followed by a motivation talk from our guest speaker, DR.T Makwarela. Lastly, we had a panel discussion which had Ndou Ntsundeni,Mudau Matodzi, Phalandwa Mulweli and Nemavhadwe Malamba. After the panel discussion, we also had a Q & A session where students got chance to ask the panel questions.
The second part of the programme was career exhibition. Which was led by Bono Foundation volunteers, Uplifting Future Lawyers Organisation, and Stop the Spot. Students had the opportunity to enquire about different faculties and post high school opportunities available.
The third and last part of the event was online applications. Matric students who required help with applications to the different institutions were able to get the necessary assistance
Career and Varsity Life Awareness (CAVALIA) is basically a day where we give students a lot of information on career opportunities, tertiary life and survival tips, bursaries that are available and we also try to bring as many application forms as possible for students who wouldn’t have otherwise gotten access to them
