Huis Boekenhout's 2009 Yearbook
A yearbook is a book to highlight and commemorate the past year of a school, university or company. Tradition comes from the Latin word traditione, which means handing over; passing on. It represents certain customs taught and passed on to the next generation [Wikipedia.com]
This year Huis Boekenhout decided to re-start this important tradition under the leadership of Marno Kirstein, a Master’s student in Information Design. We thank him on behalf of our residence for this spectacular idea and for all the time and effort he put into this yearbook. We are proud to resurrect this tradition and we will each carry this book close to our hearts for the rest of our lives. We will relive and treasure every memoir in it.
Our 2009 yearbook comprises of various pictures and articles of activities we took part in, printed on 46 high quality pages. The yearbook is available at the University of Pretoria’s archive for the public to view.
“The production of the 2009 Boekenhout yearbook is a wonderful highlight. The quality is exceptional and the content delightful. I am sure every house member, and me, will find much joy in these memories of 2009 in future!” Prof Bernard Slippers
Huis Boeknhout leaves a challenge to all the other Tukkies residences:
Join us in reviving this tradition!!!
