Congratulations to the Department of Public Relations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They have made the Faculty proud.
They ran our open day as a project. They raised funds, build stalls and produced information for almost every department in the Faculty.
AND they won first prize for the best stand, which they built for Interior design, and they won second prize for the stand of their own Department.
I walked though our entire exhibition and interviewed the students that did duty. I found them knowledgeable, enthusiastic and helpful. It was amazing the way they seemed to sound as if they were actually students of the courses that they represented.
Of course, the other side of the coin is that they now know the Faculty very well. They know which departments come up with the goods, co-operate, and appreciate what they are doing. And they know which departments are more lazzais-faire about what should happen at open day.
Aysha Toyer did a phenomenal job project-managing the whole thing, and Johann van der Merwe did a great job motivating heads of departments to cooperate.
Thanks to all who participated.
