On 13 March MUT hosted the 8th edition of the Circle of Excellence (CoE) Awards at the Hilton Hotel, Durban. The CoE Awards are a way the University shows appreciation of the hard work done by Umlazi Township schools, particularly in grade 12. The focus is on performance in Mathematics, Physics, English and Accounting. The schools that are awarded are those that obtain 100% pass rate, and excellent pass rate in the said subjects. Next year MUT will also recognise sports excellence in these schools. Sponsors play a big role in the success of the CoE. The guest speaker was Umalusi’s Dr Mafu Rakometsi.
