The festival was a total success as students came in good numbers.

Words of Encouragement from our 2017 SRC Secretary General: Ofentse Maloma
I would like to quote the words of Anne Frank
‘Everyone has inside them a piece of good news. The good news is you don't know how great you can be. How much you can level! What you can accomplish and what your potential is.’
It has been a year of achievements and also challenges in our country but we live to better the conditions of living by educating ourselves to the core.
As the SRC of 2017 we are very much in progress of championing our students Grievances and all the challenges we facing as a College. I would like to encourage students to pass with distinctions and excel to achieve the future. Maintain high level of discipline and moral in what you are doing in the college.
The SRC is always available to render services to students and hence students need to make use it. We are elected by students and we are here to be the mouthpiece of students at large. We have achieved some of our plan of actions and has challenges on some other actions but we are dealing with it in order to better our services and achieve our mandate given by students.
We have a supportive management in our College that meets students’ needs halfway whenever they are. We are a College of good reputation and known for excellence in academics. Let us make use of the facilities we have in our college in order to harness our educational capacity.
There are more programs to be introduced that involve students and we would like to see a maximum participation from students at large.
May everyone have a blessed academic year and achieve the future.
Distinctions must rise.
Note from the SRC President
First of all, let me assert my firm believe that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. Nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyses needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.
With malice towards none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the institutions wounds, to care for him who shall borne the battle, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all four campues.
We are all Tshwane Southerns, we are all federalists. If there be any among us who would wish to dissolve this Union or to change it's republican form, let them stand undisturbed as monuments of safety with which error of option may be tolerated where reason is left free to combat it.
And so, my fellow students: ask not what your college can do for you - ask what you can do for your college. My fellow compatriots of Tshwane South TVET College: ask not what I and our fellow leadership of the SRC will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of men in the college.
In this present crisis, the SRC is not the solution to our problem; the SRC is the problem. From time to time we've been tempted to believe that society has become to complex to be managed by self-rule, that the SRC by an elite group is superior to the SRC itself for, by, and of the people.
Well, if no one among us is capable of governing themselves, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else? All of us together, in and out of the SRC, must bear the burden. The solutions we seek must be equitable, with no one group singled out to pay a higher price.
On this day, as we've gathered; we gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord. And on this day, we come to proclaim an end to the pretty grievances and false promises, the recriminations, and worn out dogmas that for far too long have strangled our institution.
We remain a young nation. The time has come to reaffirm our enduring spirit, to choose our better history, to carry forward the precious gift that noble idea passes on from this generation to another; that God-given promise that all are equal, that are free, and all deserve a chance to pursue their full measure of decent education.
One of the greatest philosopher once said, "Our fear is not that we are inadequate, our fear is that we are powerful beyond measure; We ask ourselves 'Who am I to be beautiful, intelligent, brilliant and talented but who am I not to be?' "
