One of WK's form 5 students, Shreya Semnarayan, was invited to speak at the South African Youth Parliament on Friday 26th June 2020.
The South African Parliament had convened its first Youth Parliament of the Sixth Dispensation under the theme, “Youth Power: Growing the Economy together in a time of COVID-19.” Shreya is part of a group of South African youth that organized a march on 16th June 2020 in Johannesburg to protest against systemic racism in light of the global outcry against racism. Waterford principal Stephen said,"We are proud of her for showing leadership in South Africa. Her efforts are consistent with our mission as Waterford Kamhlaba. As we build leaders for Africa and the world, we are encouraged when our students start now to demonstrate high level of responsibility and leadership in the society."
