TSiBA’s culture of leadership and Pay it Forward includes students taking ownership of their campus, their careers and their personal development. TSiBA staff does their best to support initiatives of the clubs on campus and, where possible, source volunteers to help. Currently netball and soccer are the two active sports clubs on campus.
Students have access to the computer lab with internet access during normal office hours. Hostel students have access until 10pm all week round. Students are provided with their own email addresses. Assignments are submitted online using TSiBALink, an online school administration application. This is line with our green policy on using resources, such as paper, sparingly.
Hero Speaker Programme
Students have the privilege of listening to stories of visiting Hero Speakers every month. These are guests from all walks of life who come and share their successes, failures and learnings.
TSiBA Eden’s Ignition Centre is in the planning stages and will be fully operational by the end of 2011. It is essential that this Centre is aligned to the skills needs of the region and the community. Therefore, added to entrepreneurial support, the Ignition Centre will serve as a community ignition hub. TSiBA Eden’s Ignition Centre is currently registered as an internationally accredited IT training centre and offers free tuition to community members. The Centre is also presently offering vegetable growing business training.
The library resource area is located in the student recreational room. The primary focus is on course related topics. There is a small fiction section and some material on topics of general interest.
During the Higher Certificate (HCBA) year, students support each other in their learning and growth with syndicate and study groups which, in turn, are supported by a mentor.
The SRC run a weekly students-only Open Forum meeting to engage with the whole student body on a wide range of student-specific matters. These matters are tabled at a monthly SRC-Eden Management meeting.
Student Representative Council (SRC)
The objectives of this Student Representative Council at TSiBA Eden are to:
• Monitor and support the upkeep of high educational standards for students within TSiBA Eden
• To improve the green space, generally known as the natural environment
• To promote the health and well-being of the students, working together as a family regardless of age, ethnic origin, ability, sex, belief or political affiliation recognising the value of our many differences
• To work with similar groups
• To actively raise funds, to manage contributions and, where appropriate, to allocate funding to student ventures that meet the approval of both the student body and management.
The Student Affairs Manager manages the student support programmes and careers guidance on campus and coordinates the various professional resources. This support ranges from Talk Circles to healthcare access and psychological counseling.
