Celebrating Women’s Day


Staff and students came out in their numbers on 8 August to celebrate Women’s Day in the company of singer Lerato Molapo, professionally known as Lira.


Lira’s motivational message focused on inspiring limitless potential in women, a matter that is very close to her heart.


She emphasised the importance of getting a good education and motivated the women to follow their hearts and never give up on their dreams.
