St John’s College Valedictory Address


On Friday, I was honoured to be invited as the guest speaker at the St John’s College valedictory ceremony. The speech included advice to the class of 2016, touched on the current South African political situation, and criticised the racism still prevalent at St John’s and many other schools in South Africa. The full speech is below:
