Dear Students,

On behalf of the SILVA community, may I take this noble opportunity to welcome the new and returning students for the academic year 2016/17  We are thrilled to have you with us on campus, and we are excited to help nurture your academic strengths, encourage your personal growth, and inspire your creativity. The college is in the process of receiving new admissions for the certificate and diploma courses.

Our college is a unique one as it offers students an amazing opportunity to be trained in courses that are attached to the high paying jobs that have great demand in the market place. As students, you are the cornerstone to our campus community and our partners in advancing SILVA stature as a preeminent regional-class technical college. Our campus continually earns top rating from our graduates, in terms of our academic quality, diversity, and environmental sustainability. We are committed to continued investment to make the study life at SILVA more enjoyable to all. For returning students already you know that learning at SILVA extends far beyond the classroom.

As we learn a great deal from each other, we encourage our students and all members of our academic community to be full participants in the free and open exchange of ideas and viewpoints that characterizes our college. We commit ourselves to upholding the values we cherish as an academic and technical institution, and to fostering an atmosphere that is respectful, supportive, and welcoming to all. The diversity of our backgrounds, talents, and perspectives will continue to enrich us all as we live and learn together.

The Cheka Silva Heritage campus is closely connected with the surrounding neighbourhoods, the college encourages you all to engage with our community as good neighbours and good stewards.

Finally, may I take this opportunity to invite all form four with one Principal pass and one subsidiary at A Level or Basic Technician Certificate and those four passes at O Level or VETA – NVA level 3 respectively to lodge their applications directly to SILVA immediately, we are optimistic that you will be chosen to join us. We are proud to have you as part of our SILVA family, and I look forward to seeing you on campus soon.
