The Department of Education recently hosted a memorial lecture as part of this year’s Human Rights Day celebrations. The lecture, with the theme “Reflecting on Democratic leadership for change and transformation underpinned on Constitutional Values”, aimed to encourage and develop a culture of discussions amongst the youth.

Prof. Dennis Francis, Dean of the Faculty Education at the University of the Free State (UFS) presented a paper at the memorial lecture. His paper, titled “Multiculturalism in South Africa: Education in a shadow of a rainbow”, impressed everybody in the audience.

The audience consisted of learners from various secondary schools in Motheo District Municipality and their principals. Officials from the Department of Education both at district and provincial level also attended the lecture.
