RBS Graduation ceremony held at the Westville Correctional Services Centre.


On Wednesday, the 5th October 2016 REGENT Business School conducted their first ever Graduation ceremony held at the Westville Correctional Services centre in Durban to honour Graduands from the Medium E (female) section of the prison.

A similar graduation ceremony was simultaneously conducted at the Medium B (male) Prison.

Six students altogether from both sections of the Westville Correctional Services Centre, two female and four male students, had successfully completed their studies in one of the following programmes; the Higher Certificate in Business Management (CIBM), Higher Certificate in Islamic Finance, Banking and Law (HCIFBL) and the Postgraduate Diploma in Management (PG DIM).

The Muslim Prison Board KZN played a supportive role in facilitating the communications between REGENT Business School and the officials at the Westville Correctional Services Centre.

The Department of Correctional Services staff who were present at the female Graduation ceremony had very motivating and supportive messages for the female Graduands and the inmates attending the ceremony.

The Durban Correctional Services Social worker at the Medium E facility, Mrs Dhlamini recognised the efforts of REGENT Business School in bringing the graduation ceremony to the students. She eluded to the fact that this was a very first such event held at a female correctional services centre. She said that historically students would study through a college and they would receive their certificates via the post. There was no ceremony to recognise the student’s efforts or to motivate the other inmates. She was direct in motivating the audience to make the effort and commit to educating themselves. She lauded REGENT Business School for being the only institution to recognise their students and for their commitment towards student’s success and achievements.

The head of the Durban Correctional Services, Mrs Mkhize expressed her heartfelt gratitude to REGENT Business School for making education accessible to the inmates of Westville Correctional Services Centre.  She said that she saw the graduation ceremony as being an affirmation of the commitment and dedication the students had in completing their studies. She recognised the female offenders for their efforts and in achieving their qualifications despite the harsh conditions they found themselves in.  Mrs Mkhize further indicated that the parole board looked favourably upon and encouraged students who had undertaken some sort of study during their time in prison. She finally expressed her pride in the achievements of all the students graduating.

REGENT Business school representatives addressed the audience of approximately 50 inmates on the study options available to them and received questions that the inmates had.   The morning’s proceedings ended with refreshments for the inmates.

Graduation 2016


Reflective of the educational purposes that we espouse, at REGENT Business School (RBS) we began with the end in mind, building foundations of hope, nurturing aspirations of greatness and formulating dreams into reality. Efforts that culminated into a day that we were all proud of as the assembled audience gasped in awe and cheered from the heart as the hall echoed with names of future leaders, in confirmation of an achievement of a lifetime.

The 2016 RBS Graduation ceremony attracted some 2000 plus attendees from afar as Angola, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, Namibia, DRC, Lesotho, Tanzania and Nigeria. Students acknowledged every moment in celebration of their unique experiences of years of learning. The highlight of which, was when they crossed the stage to receive their award for their toil and sacrifices towards the achievement of academic success.

To make the graduation ceremony more reflective of RBS’s aspirations for all of its students, by acknowledging them in a meaningful way, we revised proceedings to focus on the individual students rather than formalities and speeches, thus allowing us to finish in record time, leaving graduates with time to revel in their achievement with fellow graduates, families and friends, over a scrumptious lunch. After 13 years of public schooling and 3 to 4 years of tertiary studies, a commitment of this magnitude deserves reflection.

All institutions of education publicly state and believe that every individual can learn, and have high expectations for all their learners to succeed and achieve. If this is the end we have in mind, then we are striving for a life of rich possibility for all. At RBS we want every graduation to have the capacity to contribute to the common good of society, by consistently producing graduates of exemplary caliber, accomplished by a student centric approach to teaching and learning together with establishing a bond with our students, as not only academic but as life coaches too.

To return to the point about ‘beginning with the end in mind’, these accolades achieved are a worthy end to keep in mind. Dedication and commitment from both Institution and learners towards a common goal, and the achievement thereof deserves this acknowledgement. We at RBS celebrate their achievements, appreciate them as unique individuals and speak with optimism of their future. RBS is proud to say that all of our graduates have achieved something of worth and meaning, for that is what we at RBS set out to do. Join us in this magnificent journey to consolidate, enhance and provide education in the Republic of South Africa.
