    Writing Exams on Youth Day

    Here in SA we commemorate the students and children who died during fighting with the Apartheid government, with a public holiday called "Youth Day"..

    However, my university, in their wisdom, have told us that we still have to write exams on this public holiday.. Which is apparently a very serious business, because people from Rhodes and neighboring universities lost their lives during the struggle against Apartheid.. Meaning a lot of guys have to miss the commemoration services and such..

    Obviously its quite a local issue, and it doesn't affect me because I don't sit an exam on that day, but I really don't know what to think about the issue.. Who is at fault, the university? Or are the Students just being too damn lazy as usual?

    Is it an actual public holiday? If so, isn't it illegal to set exams on it? Surely that's the point of a public holiday...

    Yeah, if it's an official public holiday, than there should be nothing going on at university.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Both the university and students are at fault... Richard, I feel that you should write a letter to The Editor of some popular daily, maybe a little amount of media bashing will set the things right.

    I just feel like I should have an opinion because so many people are in uproar about it.. Apparently there is nothing in our constitution that prevents things happening on a public holiday.. Although everything seems to still close down, we'll see what happens I guess, I fancy a bit of a riot
