Principal's Message for 2022

Written by

Principal2022Let me start by quoting the words of our icon who has just gone ahead of us, The late “Arch” Desmond Tutu. During his address at the Nelson Mandela Foundation on 23 November 2004, he said. Don’t raise your voice, improve your argument.” On behalf of the College Council, the College Executive Management Team and on my own behalf as the Principal of the College of Cape Town, I would like to welcome all the College Community and our partners to this 2022 academic year. It is indeed a year in which the College of Cape Town is promising to improve its argument in all its endeavours and not raise its voice.

The office of the principal is quite aware of the objectives that the College sets up in its Annual Performance Plan for 2022. There is however no doubt that the various teams in the College are now invigorated and ready to pull the strings in all the directions despite the impediments that are being created by the pandemic. Being led by the able office of the Minister of Higher Education and Training, the Honourable Dr Nzimande, the College is ready to ensure that student success has been improved tremendously across the College Programme Qualification Mix. My office is also aware that both the lecturing staff and our students are ready to excel the College to new heights in this academic area.

Principal's Message for 2021

Written by

On behalf of the College Council, the College Executive Management Team (EMT) and my behalf as the new Principal of the College, I would like to welcome all the College Community and our partners to this 2021 academic year which is promising to be a real marathon. Once again the College of Cape Town (CCT) flies its flag in 2021 with its main mandate of “Inspiring Minds” of our young generations. During the 2020 academic year, CCT accomplished many big achievements despite the year being tough to navigate as a result of COVID-19 which led to many teaching and learning disruptions. It is also at this point that the College should acknowledge the sterling work that was accomplished by Principal and CEO Mr Louis van Niekerk who retired at the end of this past year 2020. The retired legend of the College led the ship for over ten years and left it still floating.
