Monday Motivation with lecturer fixing a graduate's cap. "A person is a person because he recognises others as persons." - Desmond Tutu

Good morning, BMT!

I hope you’re all feeling fantastic and excited because we’re about to kick off not one but three consecutive shortened weeks! This Thursday, we’ll be observing Human Rights Day, giving us the perfect opportunity to pause and reflect. For those savvy planners who’ve also taken Friday off, a delightful long weekend is on the horizon. The College will be taking a breather on Friday, resuming the usual bustle on Monday. And just when you think it couldn’t get any better, next week gifts us with Good Friday, and the following Monday is Family Day. What a splendid time to leap ahead on those assignments or, perhaps, indulge in some well-deserved rest and family time.
Goal this week; recognise other people (especially strangers) as persons. It may be something as simple as a smile, a greeting, listening to someone’s story, or helping someone with something.
Last week, Nathalie Tuck, a renowned public relations expert, launched our 2024 webinar series. We want to thank her once again for her excellent talk. She also gave us a short overview of how she uses AI in her work. This was an excellent introduction to the upcoming workshop about using AI in your studies, which our Head of Academics, Zoe Auths, will host.
There are summative assignments due on Wednesday. So make sure to submit those before you whisk yourself away on the long weekend!

We are also quickly nearing the end of the late registration intakes, with only two weeks left. Register online now!

Public Holiday (Thursday, 21 March 2024) – Human Rights Day

Human Rights Day is historically linked to the events of 21 March 1960 in Sharpville when several people protested against the Apartheid Pass laws. The Bill of Rights in the South African constitution sets out the rights of all people, in that all people have a right to human dignity, equality and freedom.

College Recess (Friday, 22 March 2024)

BMT College will be in recess on Friday, making the weekend a long weekend. We will, however, be back on Monday, and the Virtual Campus will be up and running.

Let’s kick off this short week

It is going to be a short week, so it is an excellent opportunity to make it super compact and get a lot more done in less time. Remember to treat other people as humans, with dignity and respect.
As the late Archbishop Desmond Tutu said, “A person is a person because he recognises other persons.”
Have an awesome week, everyone!
