The Vice-Chancellor and Principal, Prof Cheryl de la Rey (middle) and Mr Willie Spies (right), Chairperson of the TuksAlumni Board also planted trees. The custom to plant a tree during Welcoming Day on behalf of the class of the respective year originated in 2001. The first-year student represents the year group while the tree stands as symbol of this group who will become alumni themselves in years to come.
