2017 has been another exciting year at SBCS Global Learning Institute, more so with it being our 30th anniversary. What made this year engaging, as with previous years, was the consistency of your dedication and support for everything we did to enhance your SBCS experience. On behalf of our staff and lecturers, thank you for this.
Throughout this year, we shared many happy moments together, some of which include:
Also of note, we acknowledged the distinguished tenure of Mrs. Zorida Ali-Hassan, who retired from lecturing after 15 years of service with SBCS. Mrs. Ali-Hassan was one of our finest and most dedicated teachers in Law and Communications for over a decade, as well as a valued member of SBCS’ Academic Advisory Board. We wish her well in her retirement.
There were also a few sad moments, perhaps the saddest being the passing of one of our longest serving lecturers, and member of the SBCS Academic Advisory Board, Mr. Peter Pariag. He touched many lives during his over 20 years of teaching at SBCS and made an invaluable contribution to our growth and development, both as teacher and advisor. He will always be a part of the SBCS family.
As we transition into the new year, we do so with a feeling of excitement and anticipation, despite the removal of GATE and a struggling economy. 2018 will see SBCS implementing many initiatives to improve the standard and quality of excellence in all areas of our operations: new, SBCS-developed qualifications; internship and apprenticeship opportunities; improved Alumni relations; enhanced ICT integration in teaching and learning – these and many more ventures are timetabled for commissioning in the coming year.
In closing, on behalf of the SBCS Global learning Institute community, I would like to thank you for choosing us for your studies. We hope that your experience thus far has been both enjoyable and productive, and we urge you to communicate to us your suggestions and recommendations on how we can improve our service to you. Despite the trying economic times, our primary goal remains to deliver to you a truly outstanding educational experience.
For now, though, I wish everyone a safe and happy holiday. And to our Christian colleagues, I wish you a holy Christmas.
Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2018.
Robin R. Maraj
