Welcome remarks from the Office of the Acting Principal: Mr. Molifi Israel Mabe

 Dear College Staff Members,

Allow me to take this moment, on behalf of the College Council and Executive Management, to welcome you to the 2023 College Academic year.

We hope that the December 2022 holidays has reinvigorated and re-energized you for the New Year.   I would like to:

  • Take this moment to congratulate those who found love and got married, the ones who have become parents and those who completed their academic goals for 2022. 
  • Extend condolences to families who faced the unfortunate circumstances of losing their family members and friends. May God comfort you, and may this year bring you good health, healing and prosperity.

We received the sad news of the passing away of Mr. Cornelius Wellsy Pieterson, a staff member at Skills Academy during the holidays and wish to send condolences to the colleagues, friends and family of Mr. Pieterson.
