On the 11th of May, both Ivory and Ebony park Ikamvanites attended the University of Johannesburg Open Day. As expected, ikamvanites came in numbers to avail themselves for the Open Day. On arrival, the learners were introduced to their Tour Marshall for the day, who then read-out the rules and explained on how the tour will be conducted.


They started by visiting all the departments the University offers. In each department ikamvanites got to know different career paths to follow and their requirements. Ikamvanites learnt the different Degrees and Diplomas the institution offers. They were advised to work hard on their grade 11 and 12 results to stand a chance of getting accepted at the Institution.  Ikamvanites were then asked to sit in a televised film that showed and explained the importance of choosing the best subjects and courses for their future.

This is what the learners had to say about the Open Day.

Rebecca Mamabolo (Ebony Park), “the Tour Marshall was very friendly and I experienced a lot from the Open Day”.

Kabelo Madiga (Ivory Park), “at University of Johannesburg we got all the information we needed”.

The day ended with learners asked to submit their application forms, to stand a chance of winning a bursary worth R25000 if they submit their forms on Open Day. We are working hard to attain yet another 100% placement in Gauteng for 2013!!
