Over a thousand University of Johannesburg (UJ) employees flocked to the Kingsway Campus for a laid-back Staff Day on Friday, 29 May 2015 – sharing meals and enjoying live music by the Soweto String Quartet.
Staff members from three UJ campuses (Soweto, Bunting Road, and the Doornfontein) were ferried in buses to the Kingsway Campus.
Staff members donated an abundance of toiletries to the 555 Student Fund campaign that seeks to provide for the less privileged UJ students. Also, staff members offered vouchers to the value of just over R4000 to be put to various use for students.
The festivities, marked by the Vice-Chancellor’s, Prof Ihron Rensburg, speech, were in celebration of UJ’s 10 years of existence. Prof Rensburg thanked all staff members in attendance for a collective job well-done over the past decade.
The University’s staff members were given the opportunity to showcase and sell their handcrafted items. There were 12 exhibitors.
