Richfield Pretoria Campus places a high priority on students’ needs and wants. On the 1st of September, Richfield gave its students an opportunity to celebrate spring in a way that is fun and beneficial to the institution. In addition, they remembered their cultures since it was the first day of Heritage Month.
Diana Letswalo, one of the senior lecturers, said the event was meant to celebrate spring day and give students the chance to showcase their products, play games, and also have a fashion show.
“Students should come and enroll with Richfield because, we offer high value education and the courses we offer are in high demand like Business administration and Specialisation in Marketing and our students have excellent chances of being employed right after graduating”, said Letswalo.
Some of the students were selling food and products they had made themselves and playing well-known games from the olden days like lekusha, a wool game.
One of the students, Takalani Molapo, said he thinks the event is important, especially since it brings students together and gives them the chance to get to know each other better.
“It is beneficial for Richfield because it increases student enrollment, because students come with friends and see that Richfield is not only about providing education.”
“As Africans, we need to go back to the days when we did not shy away from our cultures. I am proud of being a Pedi (North Sotho)”, Molapo added.
