Graduation Windhoek 1st Intake

TRC Chairman Speech for KAYEC Graduation

Introduction: Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen, esteemed director & instructors, honored guests, fellow graduates, and dear family and friends.

Thank you for being here to celebrate this momentous occasion with us. As we stand on the threshold of a new chapter in our lives, I am filled with gratitude and pride. Today, I want to express my heartfelt appreciation to the institution and our dedicated instructors who have played an instrumental role in shaping our journey.

Acknowledging the Institution: First and foremost, let us recognize the institution that has been our home for the past 6 months. KAYEC has provided us not only with knowledge but also with a sense of community. From the resources availed to us e.g. tools and equipment to the different subjects that gave us a broader view on life in general e.g. HIV, every corner of this campus has contributed to our growth. The tireless efforts of the administrative staff, the maintenance crew, and everyone behind the scenes have made our experience seamless and enriching. I would also like to point out that I was particularly impressed with Tate Lucas’s work ethic as it’s really just unmatched.

Our Instructors: Next, let us turn our attention to the unsung heroes—the instructors. These remarkable individuals have not only imparted technical skills but have also instilled in us a passion for our chosen field. Their dedication, patience, and commitment to our success have been unwavering. Whether it was explaining complex theories, demonstrating practical techniques, or sharing real-world experiences, they have gone above and beyond. 

What I have learned and what I loved at the institution: 

  1. I never knew that a hazard is such a broad word with so many meanings therefore nowadays I get to identify any hazard big or small and take the appropriate action. Car Hazards.
  2. I never did drawings in my life but I fell in love with it the moment Ms. Vera taught me how to use the drawing instructions therefore now I get to teach myself and do more drawings using YouTube.
  3. I was amazed one day when the director said something about how someone get to learn [correct me if I’m wrong at my %] 10% you learn through reading, 20% you learn through writing, 30% you learn through doing and 50% you learn through teaching.

TRC’s: I regret to inform you that unfortunately the institution was not able to witness my potential leadership skills regarding the TRC’s and I admit that we didn’t perform well but as I leader I take the blame. I noticed a problem in the foundation of the TRC’s very early in my leadership but instead of complaining I took another approach to identity all the problems within and address them in writing with their solutions e.g. the duties of each committee must be in writing so that everyone knows what is expected of them. Something that my dad also taught me is to be careful how you address a problem, yes I had the power because I was the chairman but if you are not careful people will turn against you. I’m still working on the report and I will submit it to Mr. Nangolo once I’m done, I know that it’s a lot of work but I want the next trainees to hit the ground running and I’m also doing it because my vision for the institution and society is at heart.

Fellow Graduates: Lastly, my fellow graduates, you have been my companions on this journey. We’ve laughed together and supported each other through tough tests and exams, and celebrated milestones. Our camaraderie has made this experience memorable. Let us carry forward the bonds we’ve forged here as we take the next step in our life’s.

Conclusion: In closing, let us remember that education is not just about textbooks and grades; it’s about growth, resilience, and the pursuit of excellence. To KAYEC and our instructors, thank you for molding us into skilled professionals and compassionate human beings. As we embark on our individual paths, let us honor your legacy by making a positive impact in our communities.
