In November 2013, SJV produced the 7th Edition of its Magazine, titled “F&R” (Faith and Reason in Action). This glossy magazine continues to improve with each successive attempt. This time the Magazine Team, convened by Fr Bongani Mbhele, and with Thinky Mabaso as the editor, in order to encourage the students to write articles, decided to award prizes for the best 3 articles published.
Among the articles submitted the judges decided that the article “Tempting yet dangerous”, written by Tebello Moeti, with its challenging moral content was the winner. An article on the Mass titled, “The Climax of Worship – an Act of Love”, written by Thabang Ntsietsang was judged to be the second best, while Thabiso Nkheswa’s article on faith, titled “Because we Believe”, was judged the third best.
In a short ceremony at the end of Mass on Saturday 29 March 2014, incoming editor, Nkosinathi Majola, and Fr Mbhele announced the winners who came forward to receive their awards. Nkosinathi explained that these awards should be seen as a “token of encouragement” to motivate the student body to begin writing and submitting their articles to be considered for publication in the 2014 edition of F&R!
