In the words of the Col­le­ge's p­rin­ci­pal, C­harl van Heer­den “A gra­du­a­ti­on is the re­sult and out­co­me of hard work and de­di­ca­ti­on. A mi­les­to­ne in the li­fe of a stu­dent, if you are he­re to­day, you de­mon­stra­ted that you are not the kind of per­son that is going to sit back and let li­fe hap­pen but that you are going to ma­ke it hap­pen! You ha­ve cho­sen to ta­ke char­ge of your des­tiny.”

At this y­e­ar’s di­plo­ma ce­re­mo­ny, the col­le­ge al­so had the gre­at pri­vi­le­ge to ha­ve a for­mer stu­dent as their guest s­pea­ker, Siphi­we Groot­boom who was a­war­ded the Na­ti­o­nal Top A­chie­vers A­ward for Tou­rism in 2016 and was ho­nou­red with a P­rin­ci­pal Me­dal­li­on for out­stan­ding a­ca­de­mic per­for­man­ce.
