Edgewood Residence Life Office Honours its Hardworking Team
Edgewood Residence Assistants (RAs) and House Committee members (House Coms) for 2013 were recognised with pride at the Annual Prize Giving Ceremony of the Edgewood Residence Life Office held on Friday, 11 October.
The glamorous event took place at the Blue Waters Hotel and was attended by members of the Edgewood SRC, June-Rose Cele of Student Residences Affairs, Mr Ramsamy Naidoo of RMS, Guest Speaker and Teaching Practice Officer, Thula Sithole and Students’ family members as dignitaries.
According to Residence Life Officer, Julian King, the event was aimed at celebrating and acknowledging the selflessness, hard-work, dedication and commitment put in throughout the year to ensure students’ experience in residences is both memorable and comfortable.
‘Monitoring student wellness in residences is challenging and comes with a lot of sacrifices. The RAs and House Coms have done a tremendous job in ensuring that the Residence Life Office is functional and continually provides quality and excellent service to students,’ said King.
In her keynote address, Sithole commended the awardees for their excellent service provision and noted the good leadership skills they have displayed through their service. She applauded the Residence Life Office for selecting accountable and dedicated students.
‘The University strives to provide a client-orientated service that is based upon mutual respect and common understanding. The Residence Life Office has been doing exactly that, particularly in the academic year 2013. The service that awardees have displayed shows all these qualities and hence the University community prides itself on having groomed and moulded such capable students,’ she said.
Fourteen RAs and 52 House Com members were recognised at the event.
