On Saturday 17 April 2021 Waterford Kamhlaba celebrated UWC Day – a day that is about celebration of the diversity of cultures and nationalities represented in the UWC colleges.
During UWC day, students, staff, parents and the broader Waterford Kamhlaba family show a little bit of what their “home” is like to the rest of the school. It features a parade of nations where students represent their own countries in their traditional attires and greet the rest of the school in their home language. Student led food stalls present food from around the world.
The 2021 UWC Day was different because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Other members of the Waterford community such as parents and alumni did not participate; the Parade of Nations and other performances were physically-distant.
