Good work: Lerato Molebatsi from Sanlam and Daniel Munene, co-ordinator in the Faculty of Commerce congratulate student Shariefa Jainoodien, centre, during the Educational Development Unit awards ceremony. Jainoodien was among 156 students feted at two awards ceremonies hosted by the Faculty of Commerce.

Celebrations and career guidance were the order of two evenings as the Educational Development Unit in the Faculty of Commerce hosted award ceremonies to recognise students' outstanding academic achievements.

First up, at a Sanlam-sponsored event on 8 August, 54 students on the 2004-2008 academic development business science programme were rewarded for outstanding academic achievements. Six days later, 102 students on the academic development BCom programme received similar honours at the Educational Development Saville Foundation Awards, held at the Centre for African Studies.
