The Teacher Development Studies department at the University of KwaZulu-Natal’s Pietermaritzburg campus are proud of the achievements of 11 students who graduated with masters in education.
The part-time students, who are practising teachers, principals or departmental officials, attended lectures on Saturdays and during the school holidays.
The 11 who graduated were Muziwenhlanhla Kwela, Mandisa
Magwanyana, Philisiwe Magwanyana, Thandokuhle Magwanyana, Lucky Mahlaba, Phumzile Majozi, Nosipho Makhathini, Nkanyiso Mthembu, Therusha Naicker, Bongiwe Ntombela and Themi Nzama.
As a group, they were dedicated and committed to their studies and motivated each other to complete their masters. Their lecturers and supervisors, Prof Carol Bertram, Dr Jaqueline Naidoo and Dr Nonhlanhla Mthiyane scheduled cohort sessions to support them though the writing of their dissertations.
