High school learners urged to be innovative

The guests who attended the Revelation of Prophecy Ministries back to school service included church leaders and congregants as well as high school learners.

Learners, guests and congregants of the Revelation of Prophecy Ministries gathered for a spiritually uplifting back to school service on Saturday.

The Forderville Primary School hall reverberated with the sounds of praise and worship as the event kicked off at about 11am.

The purpose of the back to school service was to encourage and motivate learners and also give them options when it came to careers.

The invited guests carried a vast background of skills, being directors and managers in their chosen fields. Keynote guest speaker Mr Majola is a Senior Project Manager at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR).

Keynote guest speaker Mr Majola addresses the audience.

The 43-year-old from Johannesburg holds various degrees in project management and business leadership. Mr Majola began his speech with an inspirational quote from Exodus 35 verses 30-35 from the Bible, saying that these words have inspired him.

He spoke about his journey from matriculating in 1993, studying at the Durban Technical College and attaining jobs at successful companies.

His hard work and determination did not phase away after he had completed his tertiary education, instead he reached higher and worked harder and his qualifications are recognised internationally.

“Yes, I lost many friends and sometimes I would only see my children on Sundays but you have to be prepared to lose friends if you want to achieve your goals, unless you have friends with the same goals,” he said.

Mr Majola spoke of how we are now living in the ‘knowledge economy’ and encouraged the youth to seek this knowledge, through reading and technology.

“We are living in a digital era where humans will be replaced by technology. Be innovative when looking for jobs. The careers in high demand are business analysts, marketing, data scientists and engineering,” said Mr Majola.

He concluded by telling all present that education is non-negotiable and opportunities are available. The back to school service proceeded with more talks from speakers, who focused on careers and education.
