Charlotte Searle commemorative lecture

  • Wilma Kotzé


We are attending a gala dinner tonight, and I have been invited to deliver the Charlotte Searle commemorative lecture. The term “gala” indicates festivity! The term “commemorative” asks for celebration in memory of something or someone. It asks us to reflect and remember, and to celebrate in doing so! Colleagues, we have good reason to engage in festivity. However, we must never forget the nursing heroes who paved the way over decades for what we celebrate tonight. As nurses of South Africa, we are blessed with roots and a history of which we can really be proud.
