​Against the background of achievement and valuable lessons learned from our complex history, the Centenary theme 100 years of learning; growing and moving forward together signifies a new beginning for SU.

On Saturday, 3 March 2018, the Centre for Student Recruitment and Career Advice (CSR) in partnership with the Development and Alumni Relations Office, hosted Western Cape principals of strategically identified feeder schools for a breakfast at STIAS. This event created an opportunity for the University to acknowledge the important role these schools play in delivering exceptional academic talent for admission into undergraduate programmes at the University.

Prof de Villiers, Rector and Vice-Chancellor, acknowledged these school's valuable contribution to reach both past, present and future goals and emphasized the importance of strengthening partnerships as we cultivate the Next 100.

“Events like these provide platforms where we can maintain and advance mutually beneficial relationships," says Leon van den Heever, Director: CSR. The CSR would like to acknowledge and celebrate visionary principals and passionate educators. “We understand that we need each other if we want to impact the system in a meaningful way".
