College carves futures

There is a true passion amongst the teachers of the Amogelang College to help students who are slow learners to carve a career and become successful.

Petronella Swarts, who did all the groundwork for Amogelang last year, says she was inspired by her late sister, Pamela Isaac, who had a great struggle to be independent and make a living for herself.

Swarts decided she would do everything in her power to help as many students as possible to receive training and find a job.

Many of these students completed their schooling at the Dr. Böhmer School or the Martie du Plessis School and struggle to cope with courses at training institutes such as the Motheo Technical and Vocational Edu­cation and Training (TVET) College.

Swarts hopes to get sponsor­ships so that the students can study for free and that the lecturers can get a salary.

There are already three certificates that students can complete and more courses are due to start soon.

Amogelang now gives training to 22 students in welding (at the Dr. Böhmer School), as well as computer courses and needlework (in Gemsbork Street, Oranjesig).

Swarts plans more courses, in cooking, beadwork, agri­culture and upholstery.

The college also often provides transport for the students.

To raise funds for the college, Amogelang will have a fun day and bazaar on 14 September.

For information about the fun day or Amogelang College courses, contact the college on 084-906-7428.
