Reaping the Fruits of Hard Work

Reaping the Fruits of Hard Work

DUT’s Child and Youth Care Department recently hosted their student awards where students awarded for their hard works and were also encouraged to perform better in their studies.

The event, held on the University’s Steve Biko Campus, was also aimed at giving students a networking platform which would allow them to collaborate with other people who would provide valuable contribution to their studies.

“These (awards) are important because they motivates students to work harder,” said Lyrise Naidu, Child and Youth Care forth year student. “They (the awards) also serve to motivate those who are not doing well on their studies and all of us to raise the bar and achieve great results,” she said.

Zonke Hlongwane, Child and Youth Care first year student was happy to be awarded for her hard work. “I got the award for overall achiever which basically means I got the most marks in all subjects. I also got another two awards. It is a humbling experience and it teaches you that hard work does pay. The rewards are encouraging,” Hlongwane said.

Shanaz Ghuman, Child and Youth Care Head of Department urged students to always do their best and not to be afraid of failure. “Most of successful people around the world have worked hard and they had failed before they got it right. You must not fail to try in life,” she said.

Child and Youth Care Program’s award is an annual award where students are given certificate and trophies for their hard work in their subjects.
