Message to Students

Dear False Bay Students (Full time, Part time and Distance Learners)

Please note that we are working hard behind the scenes to ensure that teaching and learning continues and that there are plans in place for academic catch-up before exams and assessments. Many of you may be in contact with your lecturer via WhatsApp or alternative communication tools such as SMS. Please use these platforms to continue engaging with your academic work. It is important that you spend at least 2 – 3 hours a day going over notes, making study notes and mind maps, working through old test or exam papers as well as keeping up to date with information received through the various communication platforms.

The Trimester examination timetable will be revised and as soon as it is available, it will be made public via the college website and its social media platforms. Please note that there will be revision and catch up lessons planned as soon as we have received communication from the DHET regarding adjusted dates.

Semester internal exam dates will be communicated to you as soon as possible as well as any revised Semester external dates.

NCV students have notes, textbooks and exercises and are encouraged to work on these tasks and put in study time each day.

Occupational students must note that catch up plans will be in place and we are in contact with the relevant SETAs to ensure that this does not impact on you completing your qualification.

The College is in negotiations regarding access to zero rated data for some learning sites and will provide you with details as soon as it is confirmed.

This is the time when you need to be the mature and hardworking students that we know you to be. Work hard at home and keep on preparing and engaging with your textbooks, notes and assessments. These are exceptional times and we need to dig deep to find the strength and resilience to keep our eye on the end goal.

Remember our MOT principles: Courage to Care, Courage to Live, Courage to Say NO!

Stay safe and we will all come out of this stronger.
