Over the last fifteen years Monash South Africa (MSA) has worked to produce graduates who are truly globally-minded, highly skilled and employable. Our graduates understand that the internationally recognised MSA degrees that they earn open the doors to leadership and represent a responsibility to use what they have learned to positively impact the world around them. On Saturday 9 April, over a thousand students from the 60 different nationalities represented on campus received their MSA degrees in Johannesburg and began their journey towards making their mark on the world.

The celebrations commemorated the 19th and 20th graduation ceremonies held by MSA since the institution was founded by Monash University in 2001. The initial ceremony for Higher Certificate in Higher Education Studies, the School of Health Sciences and the School of Social Science was followed by the School of Information Technology and the School of Business and Economics ceremony. Each ceremony was a joyful and prestigious occasion, as MSA proudly celebrated the achievements of our graduates along with their families and friends.

The highlight of each ceremony was undoubtedly the passionate and heartfelt speeches delivered by the four MSA student speakers; Lisa Sidambe (from Zimbabwe), Zahra Kaba (from Tanzania), Steve Velcev (from South Africa) and Yamikani Katunga (from Zimbabwe). Each of the student speakers have consistently shown excellence in their academia, their leadership skills and in community engagement during their time at MSA, and their speeches reflected their ambitious and aspirational mindsets.

A particularly moving and inspirational speech was given by 2015 Mandela Rhodes Scholar and winner of the Sir John Monash Medal, Lisa Sidambe, who received a standing ovation for her incredibly brave and inspirational words. The two MSA Mandela Rhodes recipients for 2016, Kholiwe Simeon and Mussawir Hassan, also received their undergraduate degrees on the day.

MSA congratulates all newly graduated members of the MSA Alumni community, and wishes them the best in the exciting new phase of their lives.

On 8 April we saw off the 915 students who make up the Class of 2016 Graduates. The ceremony for Higher Certificate, Social Science, Health Sciences and IT students, took place in the morning and the Business and Economics Ceremony in the afternoon. The celebratory atmosphere was lifted even higher with a spectacular performance from our MSA Choir.

Our graduates and their proud families provided the glamour for the day, with some super stylish looks and bright smiles to light up the venue. As the ceremony began, our CEO, Sharad Mehra, delivered a warm and inspiring speech, encouraging each graduate to be the hero of their own lives and to take with them what they have achieved and continue to build on their success.

Mr Mehra’s speech was followed by a special video, which can be viewed on our Facebook page, which wishes all our graduates well and takes a look back at some of the most memorable moments from 2016. Our Gym Supervisor, Mr Stephen Tromp, received a particularly raucous round of applause for this special appearance in the video – go watch it and see if you can spot him!

Of course, the most important and unforgettable moment of the event was watching our graduates walk across the stage to the jubilant sounds of proud families and friends. Each beaming graduate was presented with their degree, the culmination of all their hard work, and we look forward to discovering where our now alumni will go and what incredible new heights they will reach.

Reabetsoe encouraged all present to make the choice and take action to better society as a whole, and ended with a heartfelt thank you to everyone who had helped her and her fellow graduates on their journey to success. Yande gave a moving talk about overcoming adversity and rising to face the challenges that life brings, ending with a well-deserved congratulations to all her fellow graduates.

During the ceremony, a special presentation took place for the awarding of the coveted Sir John Monash Medal. The award was presented to Social Science student Shannalee Doran for her outstanding academic record and significant commitment to advancing the goals of social justice, human rights and a sustainable environment. This award is presented to only one exemplary student annually.
