WHEN FIRST REGISTERED
George Zondo is a very devoted, dedicated and committed member of St Matthew Catholic Church in Tembisa. For many years he was part of the Parish Pastoral Council and a valuable member of St Gemma Catholic School Board.
He is a very enthusiastic scholar. He went through the Bible Course organised by the Bible Society of South Africa which empowered him in his pastoral involvement in the Parish for the training of the laity in various aspects of their Christian life such as Catechism and Family Life.
Mr Zondo is a retired teacher who has a Diploma in Primary Education from the Gauteng Department of Education as well as a Secondary Education Certificate from Vista University. He has a Practitioner’s Certificate in Adult Basic Education and Training as well as an Advanced Certificate in Education from UNISA.
Mr Zondo loves reading, especially books about God and Creation. “To me it is very interesting to know and understand nature and God as well as science and God”. He has a special interest in “how the family and community should link in our present times.”
WHY ARE YOU PURSUING STUDY AT ST AUGUSTINE COLLEGE?
Mr Zondo feels that the College is the right place for him. “With its Catholic Ethos, I will be able to learn more about God and serve him with Faith and Trust so as to empower myself to reach a larger community on the Parish Level and to have more confidence”. He also finds that in interpreting homilies from English to Zulu, it is important to be using the correct theological terms and so a study at the College will assist him in so many ways, in order to assist his parish.
WHAT HAS YOUR EXPERIENCE AT ST AUGUSTINE COLLEGE MEANT FOR YOU?
Studying at St Augustine College has “opened my eyes to quite a number of human experiences – one learns about different religions and different cultures in the world”
