False Bay TVET College say “recycling can be beautiful”

Students of False Bay TVET College, Muizenberg Campus, showed their love for the planet earth this Valentine’s Day, 12 February 2016 by hosting a Fashion Show with a twist. Inspired by the Student Representative Council (SRC), all garments modelled, needed to be made from recycled items.

Ms Mariaana Herne, Muizenberg Campus Head said “Activities of this nature help students find a balance, between academics and social development.  False Bay TVET College is too passionate about sustainability, as you will be able to see throughout the campuses, we have created an environment for recycling and responsible habits. This event was another fun way for the college to bring sustainability front of mind with the students.”An extended lunch hour for this special event, students flocked to the lecture hall which was transformed into a runway for the models. Cheers could be heard from the street as the models entered the catwalk strutting their one of a kind creation. A truly exciting afternoon of fun, the spectators each had their favourite, but when it came down to the voting, judges selected the winners for most creative and innovative designs.

Winner, Miss Leeandra Francis, Tourism student at False Bay College had the following to say when asked, what did you enjoy most about the Valentine’s day activity “the best part of the event was the making of the dress, because I learnt something about myself, that I am actually creative, and my classmates agreed by supporting and voting for me as the winner, I feel amazing and proud of myself.”

Runner up was Malba Cokile, also a Tourism student and third place was shared between Stacey-Lee Cozett (Toursim) and Melanie Sims (Educare) students.
