The School of Built Environment and Development Studies recently hosted its 2018 Student Achievement Awards function on the Howard College campus.

The event honoured high academic achievers from the disciplines of architecture, community development, housing, development studies, planning and population studies.

Students were recognised for their outstanding performances in achieving an average mark of 85% and above in their studies.

Dean of the School Professor Ernest Khalema congratulated the students saying: ‘The calibre of work you produce is a testament to your input and dedication.’ He encouraged them to continue to excel.

Second year housing student Ms Lerato Moshoeshoe was both excited and proud to receive her award for academic excellence. ‘This recognition by the School acknowledges hard work, commitment and dedication to studies. This motivates me to work even harder.’

She advised other students to ‘work at your own pace but remember to always strive to achieve your goals’. Moshoeshoe plans to complete her degree and work as a professional planner.

Dr Egerton Hingston attended the event to accept an academic excellence and merit award on behalf of his daughter, Danita, who was unable to attend.  ‘I am very proud of Danita,’ said Hingston. ‘She values the importance of education and worked hard to excel in her studies. I am glad  UKZN recognises students in this way. It encourages them to do better.’
