Departing students and staff members

Today we didn’t only say goodbye to our graduated students. Unfortunately we also had to say goodbye to our well beloved Ian and Sheetal. This morning we had a small farewell party and in the afternoon they joined the students at the graduation ceremony. Ian worked as an Assistant Director of Studies and Sheetal as an Academic Year Coordinator at EC Cape Town. So our English language center in South Africa will have a new Director of Studies and a new Academic Year Coordinator from Monday the 1st of December. __________________________________ Remember to follow us on Facebook or Twitter RELATED BLOG POSTS Graduation EC Students New Director of Studies

A poem for an awesome teacher

Like some of you might know, teacher Sheetal is going to leave our English language center in South Africa this Friday. Mohamed Algantri, student at EC Cape Town, wanted to show his appreciation for this teacher and wrote her a poem.. The Sun Our day starts with the sunrise.

I have been studying for ten months, I have not seen her angry, bored and depressed. Her mirror are students. When she helps, she feels amazed. When she supports, she feels terrific and when she sees your smile, she feels ecstatic. I go to school every day, every lesson and I find her busy with some students or things even when she is on lunch break.  As I knew her from the first day. Simply she is the key for any locks to any problems or advices, because she knows how to deal with everyone and everything. She has her own flag, do not give up, as she became our flag. Beautiful like the sun and attractive like the moon. Confident when she teaches, generous when she gives and hopeful when she smiling. She is like the fire strong and brave, water fresh and lively. We have learnt a lot from her and she has chosen her decision in life. I and EC would like to wish her all the best … Read more
