ELC Social Programme

Cape Town is full of great places to see and things to do.  At ELC we have a dedicated Social Programme Coordinator, who schedules a number of trips and activities every week which are displayed on this page, and on the notice board where students can sign up to attend.  If students have ideas, or if there is anything they think we should be doing and places we should be going, we encourage them to talk to us and let us know so we can make sure they make the most of their stay in Cape Town.

As a UCT student you are also welcome to attend a wide range of UCT events and public lectures.  This includes theatre performances and art exhibitions run by our neighbouring departments on Hiddingh Campus.

National Women’s Day

August 9 @ 12:00 am - 11:59 pm

National Women’s Day is a South African public holiday celebrated annually on 9 August. The day commemorates the 1956 march of approximately 20,000 women to the Union Buildings in Pretoria to petition against the country’s pass laws. These laws required South Africans defined as “black” under The Population Registration Act to carry an internal passport, known as a pass, that served to maintain population segregation, control urbanisation, and manage migrant labour during the apartheid era.
