All the latest news and publications with regards to sport at Eastcape Midlands TVET College. EMC | Creating New Futures!
EMC was one of seven Colleges whose sporting teams participated in the annual CASAC Provincial Games event on 26 & 27 August.
We are glad to announce that EMC teams have excelled and have achieved the following accolades:
Table tennis (males) – gold
Soccer (males)- silver
Soccer (females) – silver
Netball – silver
The teams consisted of players from all eight EMC campuses. Although these teams did not have the chance to practice as teams prior to provincial games, they performed very well during the tournament. A number of our students were selected to represent the province at the National Summer Games to be held in the Western Cape from 2 – 6 October 2017. A couple of the EMC technical officials were also elected as provincial coaches and team managers.
We would like to thank all staff who have played significant roles to make it possible for the teams to participate. A special word of thanks goes to Mr Van Heerden, our Principal and Mr Hewana, DP Corporate Services, whose presence have encouraged the teams to excel. Lastly we cannot neglect to thank and salute Mr Tshepo Ratsibe, EMC Sport, Arts and Culture Officer who sacrifices lots of his private time, and for always going the extra mile to ensure participation in provincial and national events. Mr Ratsibe we salute you and our students for wearing the EMC logo with pride! May you go from strength to strength!
EMC students are excelling!! We are proud to announce that two students from the Brickfields Road Campus Asanda Mcence, Report 191 and Pamela Ngamlashe, DSPP took part in a National TVET Debate Competition hosted by DHET at the East London ICC on the 29th and 30th of August.
The students were paired with students from King Hintsa and PE College arguing in the negative the topic:
Are Student Representative Councils effectively representing the interests of the student population?
We are happy to announce that the team won THIRD place in the NATIONAL competition, with first place going to a team from Limpopo, and second to a team from the North West.
There was no trophy for third place (unfortunately), only for first place and one for the best debator male and best debator female.
But trophies aside, the team did exceptionally well under extreme nerves and pressure. Our gratitude is also extended to Monwabisi Wopa, Student Liaison Officer of the Thanduxolo Campus who assisted and accompanied the students.
We are indeed proud of our students!
