KZN Museum celebrated youth day on the 13th of June. Youth day is commemorated annually by the museum to highlight the events that happened on the 16th of June 1976. Nine high schools from Pietermaritzburg and surrounding were invited to be part of this programme. The aim was to give the students a platform to discuss challenges and success in school education 25 years after democracy. The 1976 Soweto uprising was used as a reference for the discussion. Students looked at some of the challenges that the youth of 1976 faced and the challenges that the youth of today is facing in schools and in the communities. The event ended off with a wonderful interaction with the youth which was most inspirational!
