Wesley Day


I very much regret to announce the death of one of our students, Mr Wesley Day, student no g13d3204. Mr Day was an Oppidan student completing his Bachelor of Law degree.  He comes from Hillcrest.  Mr Day passed away following a house fire at his digs.  We extend sincere condolences to his family and friends.  This tragic event has affected many individuals.  Students concerned are receiving counselling assistance. Five students residing in the same digs sustained no physical injuries.  Their families headed to Grahamstown to be with them.  They have also received counselling support. 

The after-hours emergency line is also in operation to anyone needing further assistance. 

A memorial service will be held in Durban and further memorial arrangements at the University with be communicated in due course. 


Warm regards


 Director of Student Affairs
