EC Cape Town’s new Director of Studies

Since this week our English language center in South Africa has a new Director of Studies. Her name is Monica  and she would like to introduce herself to all of you: “Hi all students at EC Cape Town. My name is Monica, I am the newly appointed Director of Studies, taking over from Nicoletta. I am very excited to be part of this great team of staff and students. There are many new changes and upgrades happening at the school, you will see how the school’s facilities and technology in the classrooms improve next year. I am happy to be of service to everyone, especially with academic/learning questions.” _____________________________ Remember to follow us on Facebook or Twitter   RELATED BLOG POSTS Goodbye Nicoletta Graduation English Language Students

Goodbye Nicoletta

Not only students come and go. Last Friday we also had to say goodbye to Nicoletta, our former Director of Studies at the EC English language center in Cape Town. She decided that it would be best to move on and look for new opportunities in life. We are all going to miss her and wish her all the very best! Nicoletta worked as a Director of Studies for the last few years. From tomorrow and on, EC will have a new Director of Studies. She will be introduced in the next blog post. _____________________________ Remember to follow us on Facebook or Twitter   RELATED BLOG POSTS Graduation English Language Students Graduation ceremony EC Students

Teacher of the year

Last week students had the opportunity to vote for the ‘teacher of the year’. The result was presented by Nicoletta at a staff dinner party yesterday. EC’s teachers voted for the Valued Teacher, Hardie Bosman, who is the teacher who they feel helps students succeed in a global community and goes over and above the call of duty. Adele le Keur was voted by the students as the teacher who they feel embodies the spirit of what an EC teacher should be. Congratulations to both teachers! It was an extra special occasion since it was also EC Cape Town’s 8th birthday. The whole team celebrated this with a swanky dinner at the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront at sunset. As a token of appreciation, all teachers were given a “shopper”, which is made from recycled materials. A portion of the cost of these “shoppers” goes towards an NGO called “The Good Business Journey”. It’s an organisation that supports our local farmers and artisans, who are dedicated to protecting the environment, reducing energy consumption, supporting education and promoting Fairtrade. See below for an impression of this afternoon. __________________________________ Remember to follow us on Facebook or Twitter   RELATED BLOG POSTS Reminder: vote for your teacher of the year Vote for your teacher of the year
