Excitement is in the air as we start off 2013 and with all the registrations we can't wait to meet all the new students for this year. The 2nd years has just started with their first term and it is a pleasure having them back, seeing all the familiar faces.

In this newsletter we take a look at exciting collaborations along with new ideas for our newsletter, blog, facebook page and twitter! Happy new year to all our readers, may this year be a year filled with peace, love and success.

NWSD Graduate Tebogo Tebjoy

Another exciting collaboration in 2013 is with photographer Donovan Roets. NWSD will be featuring NWSD graduates in each month's newsletter and for this we will be doing fashion shoots with their designs as well as working with students to help with the styling and directing.

Tebogo Tebjoy is our first feature for 2013.  Tebogo has become a strong and successful designer through hard work, perseverance and constant problem solving. She did not let the lack of funding and support get her down, but instead Tebogo used the obstacles in her path as motivation as she climbed the mountain of success. Tebogo is an inspiration to principal, Marlene Oosthuisen, who said: "Tebogo has done it all by herself."

We wish you all the best in your future endeavors and are sure you will continue to inspire others through your success story.
