SCHOOL OF APPLIED HUMAN SCIENCES AWARDS ITS HIGH ACHIEVERS

The School of Applied Human Sciences held an awards function recently to recognise students who excelled academically.

Two hundred students from the disciplines of Criminology and Forensic Studies, Psychology, Social Work and the Centre for Communication, Media and Society (CCMS) received awards at functions on the Howard College and Pietermaritzburg campuses.

Psychology student Ms Quaraisha Joosab, who won a merit award for Health Psychology, was ecstatic. ‘It feels really good to be recognised for all the hard work I put into my studies. My parents are happy as well.’ 

Joosab advised other students to work hard, study and attend all their lectures.  Speaking at the event, Dean and Head of the School of Applied Human Sciences, Professor Nhlanhla Mkhize, said, ‘I congratulate you all for the hard work and effort you have put in getting these awards but you must continue to aim higher.’

School Manager Ms Shantha Maharaj said students within the various disciplines were valued and should be recognised for their excellent performance.

‘Holding a ceremony like this encourages students to give of their best in all they do. The management and staff of the School are very proud of our students. We offer all top performers the opportunity to continue towards postgraduate studies,’ said Maharaj.
