My name is Jabulani Nhlakanipho Mahlobo, the Chairperson of SRC at Temba Campus. I am currently a student of Tshwane North College. I originate from KZN, Pongola in a village called Msuzwaneni.
My story on how I became a student of TNC.
I finished my matric in 2010. I looked for a school to further my studies in 2011 but unfortunately I couldn’t find one until February 2011. My father advised me to do my licence and I took that advice to get my licence. I got it on the 15th of April 2011. It took me only two and half months to do it.
I got a temporary job in July 2011. I worked as a long distance driver to deliver goods from city to city in KZN until the 23th of December 2011. Early January I decided to look for a school again to further my studies.
I also decided to go to other provinces beside KZN. I wanted to study at TUT, I took my journey not knowing even where TUT was located but what I knew was that it is in Pretoria. I finally arrived but unfortunately it was full so they couldn’t accept me, that meant I had to go back home. My heart didn’t agree because I was hungry for education so I had to search again for other institutions.
Luckily enough Tshwane North College, Soshanguve South Campus is nearby TUT so I went there for information. In the prospectus that they gave me I felt I can do Safety in Society for only a year as the course is for three years, because I wanted to study at TUT so I will apply early this time. I wanted to register so I was referred to Temba campus to register for the course as it is offered there. As it was my first time in Pretoria, I didn’t know where Temba Campus was located but fortunately in that very same prospectus there were directions to all Tshwane North College Campuses.
I managed to arrive and was registered so I became a student of Tshwane North College Temba Campus. During the course of the year I started to develop the feeling of love for the Course, I fell in love with the Campus because of good support from the lecturers who give us advice and courage towards our careers. It is 2014 and I am doing Safety in Society Level 4 this year and I am coping very well with my studies.
I LOVE TSHWANE NORTH COLLEGE BECAUSE IT WAS ABLE TO FEED ME WITH THAT EDUCATION I WAS STARVING FOR…… THANKS TNC I AM PROUD TO SAY I AM A STUDENT OF TSHWANE NORTH COLLEGE. TO SOMEONE WHO IS LOOKING FOR EDUCATION, I CAN PROUDLY ADVISE AND SAY IN TSHWANE NORTH COLLEGE THERE IS QUALITY EDUCATION, EDUCATION THAT HAS FRUITS AND BRINGS JOYS AND LEAVES INDIVIDUALS FULL OF KNOWLEDGE AND WISDOM.
