Dinner to boost learning in residences

17 April 2007 | Story by Myolisi Gophe

At the Baxter/Kopano high-table dinner were Prof Evance Kalula, warden of Kopano; Felicia Fray, head student at Baxter Hall; Isaac Koimburi, head student at Kopano; and Charmaine January, warden at Baxter.

Baxter and Kopano residents donned their Friday best for their most recent high-table dinner on 13 April.

The dinner, held at the Baxter Hall on Friday evening, is part of a series of joint activities between the two residences 'to affirm common safe spaces and student residences', said Professor Evance Kalula, warden at Kopano.

Professor Martin West, deputy vice-chancellor and vice-principal, was a guest speaker. Also in attendance were registrar Hugh Amoore and Val West - both former residents - together with two UCT council members Professor David Aschman and Edwina Goliath.

West is regarded as one of the principal architects of the current system of co-operative governance in the residences, which has been credited with the development of student leadership in residences to enhance their role as learning centres.

The event is organised by the house committees.
