On Wednesday 29th January 2020, Sastri College welcomed over 250 guests to their annual awards evening at the Sastri College conference center.
This ceremony is a focal point of the school calendar when academic excellence is celebrated and recognized. This event offered our top achievers of 2019, the opportunity to revel in their success after they had worked so hard throughout the year.
Many students were also awarded additional prizes to represent the whole range of subject areas, sporting achievements, and work within the community. The top three learners across the grades received bursaries from the Sastri College alumni trust.
Making the awards presentations this year, was the guest of honor, ex-principal, Mr. Rajan Maharaj. Mr Maharaj gave an inspirational address. He referred to the need for students to always strive to take ownership of their learning in trying to achieve their learning goals. He alluded to the fact that the fourth industrial revolution, changes the prerequisites for employment. It is now imperative that the individual broaden his/ her skill set and learn about these new technologies to successfully capitalize on their benefits.
The event culminated with the presentation of the Dux Award. This award went to Abid Mustkali Kola, whose special achievement was recognized by Mr. S. Rajcoomar, the principal of Sastri College, who presented the award to Abid. This shy and unassuming lad was a worthy winner who has proven that hard work and concentration are key traits to success.
It was a memorable and enjoyable event for the students, educators, management, parents and our valued invited guests.
