Dear JMS award winners, 

We believe that the School of JMS would be better able to contribute to strengthening journalism as it exists today in South Africa and in Africa more generally if we are working in partnership with our own alumni. We would like to invite you, as one of the fifty graduates whom we are honouring this year, to take part in a conversation about this. In your view, what partnerships can the school and its alumni pursue together?  Would you like to be personally involved in such a collaboration? Please let us know your thoughts by answering the questions in this form. You will see that we have identified possible collaborations with alumni but we also ask you to contribute ideas of your own. We would appreciate it if you can do so by Sunday November 6. On Thursday November 10  at 19h00 South African time, we will convene a virtual event to which you are cordially invited, to discuss the proposals that you have shared with us.

Your Sincerely

Jeanne du Toit (Acting Head of School)
