2015 has been an exciting year for Kodumela. This year saw us hosting the 5th Annaul Science and Career Expo in Bahananwa. This event, since its inception, has impacted over 5000 grade 11 and 12 learners. It has helped many to have an idea of the field they want to study. It has inspired others to forge a path in their careers with a clear direction. The event is not just about the learners, but the organsations that come to exhibit as well. Over the years, many organisations have come and enjoyed giving back to the community through their employees. These organisations have been the embodiment of the words “Education is the most powerful weapon with which we can change the world”. Apart from just information received in the classroom, learners also need to know the application of classroom knowledge in the real world, and the variety of exhibitors have assisted in this area.
This year saw over 900 learners interacting with 13 organisation attending the Bahananwa Circuit Science and Career Expo. This included DeBeers, Aurecon, MSA Group, Sandvik, MQA, Taungana, BOSTEC, LEDET, LEDA and ETP SETA. Senwabarwana Shoprite, Limpopo Food Technology Station, Lopec and Village Main Reef sponsored the logistics for the event. Seotlong and Mphahlele also had a Science and Career Expo, sponsored by Lesego Platinum, which saw over 1000 learners attend. Lesego Platinum, SRK Consulting, GSSA, LEDA, MQA, Youth Centre for Basic Information, Capricon District Municipality, Aurecon and VMR were among the exhibitors. SRK Consulting, Lopec Spares, Bopedi Spar, Lesego Platinum and RFM media sponsored various aspects of the logistics of the event. Universities of the Witwatersrand and Johannesburg provided prospectuses and application forms for the learners attending both Science and Career Exhibitions. This year Kodemela Bokamoso also hosted the first ever Science and Career Expo in Tshwane North Distric, sponsored by the MSA group. This saw over 1000 learners in attendance. Exhibitors included MSA Group, British Airways, Rosebank College, Royal Bafokeng Holdings, SAICA, Fiona Buchner Consulting, Harvey World Travel, Westech Systems, iCollege and Kanana Development Centre.

We would like to continue to partner with you in making a difference in this nation as we continue to spread the Science and Career Exhibition across the country.
