Thanksgiving

Date & Venue: Thursday, 22 Nov, 2018, US

Thanksgiving is a time of year when people gather together to celebrate with family, friends, and express their appreciation and love for one another.For international WK alumni studying in the US, and as some of you might remember, it can be a time of increased homesickness, as campuses become empty and deserted places with classmates and roommates returning home.The Waterford Kamhlaba Advancement Office would again like to extend the spirit of Thanksgiving to this group of students by inviting WK alumni and parents, living in the US to open up their homes and welcome one or two guests, who are young alumni in university or college in the area, to come and enjoy this year's Thanksgiving with their friends and family. Should you be interested in hosting these students please send an email to 'Lwazi at alumni.engagement@waterford.sz including your location and how many you could possibly take. If you are an alum who would like to be hosted by WKUWCSA alumni in your area, please contact Lwazi at alumni.engagement@waterford.sz For any comments or questions you may have, please contact Lwazi Ngwenyama at alumni.engagement@waterford.sz

Date & Venue: Wednesday, 17 Oct, 2018, Bottlescrue in St Pauls, London, UK

The Waterford School Trust are pleased to host an evening with Michael Attenborough, CBE on Wednesday 17 October 2018. This event is open to all alumni, their friends and family; as well as friends of Waterford. It is a fantastic opportunity to hear from a renowned theatre director, who's father, Lord Richard Attenborough, not only frequently visited the school together with his wife Sheila, but was a generous supporter and advocate for the school too. Michael, along with his wife Karen, visited Waterford earlier this year and had the opportunity to meet with and present to current students. We're delighted to have the chance to hear more about his experiences, his links to the school, his thoughts on his visit and also have the chance to take part in discussions about what his experiences could mean for current and future students at the school. WK Principal Stephen Lowry will also be present to be part of the discussion with alumni. All alumni will receive a personal invitation in the mail. If you have not received one please send an email to alumni@waterford.sz so we can update your information and make sure you can register for this event in time. In order to be able to join us that evening it will be important to register.
