UKZN Cape Town based alumni and UKZN staff members.

UKZN’s Alumni Relations Office organised two successful get-togethers in Cape Town.

The first event on 13 March was an afternoon tea date hosted by the Alumni Relations team at The Cape Grace Hotel on the Waterfront.

President and Chair of Convocation, Mr Fanle Sibisi and Acting Executive Director of Corporate Relations, Ms Normah Zondo warmly welcomed everyone. Guests were provided with an overview of the current events at their alma mater, the opportunity to network with each other and an excellent selection of eats and refreshments to enjoy.

On the following day, the second event comprised a three-course dinner and an entertaining and informative talk by UKZN alumna, Ms Les Aupiais.

The well attended event provided an enjoyable opportunity for alumni, donors and friends of UKZN to renew old acquaintances, meet fellow alumni and be updated on developments at their alma mater.

Aupiais’s address was titled: Don’t Put your Daughter on the Stage, Mrs Worthington…..the profession is overcrowded and the struggle’s pretty tough and admitting the fact, she’s burning to act, that isn’t quite enough…it wasn’t!’

The presentation included a series of witty anecdotes on her career and life experiences and conveyed a positive and encouraging message to the audience.

Sibisi, in his address highlighted recent developments that had taken place at the University and encouraged everyone in the audience to support the University in whatever way they could.

Zondo welcomed guests, introduced speakers and helped answer the many questions posed.

Guests were given information packs containing a selection of UKZN publications and a corporate gift.
