SRC Group Visits KZN Rural School in Honour of Mandela
UKZN Student Representative Council members honoured this year’s Mandela Day celebrations by visiting Zibonele Secondary School in Nomakhanzana, Umthwalume District.
Heading the delegation was the SRC’s International and Marketing Officer, Mr Nkululeko Chiliza, who organised the visit in partnership with the Isibani Educational Empowerment Student Organisation, Westville Poetry Nights (WPN) and UKZN alumnus, Mr Khulekani Shozi.
The delegation informed learners about the various programmes offered at UKZN, procedures at the Central Admissions Office, applying for funding and adapting to the university life.
Learners were entertained by WPN performers and given a variety of UKZN branded freebies. Learners were elated and found the presentation informative and enlightening since some of the presenters were locals.
The school principal was thankful and believed that the visit is going to help improve the school’s matric performance and requested the team to visit them again next year. Several youngsters were selected for scholarship interviews.
