It was a celebration of hard work and resilience when postgraduate graduands in the Faculty of Informatics and Design were “robed” during a special ceremony. 

The ceremony has become a tradition in the Faculty and gives the graduands and their supervisors the opportunity to share and reflect on their journey to graduation while family members are given the chance to robe the graduands.

Six Master’s and eight doctoral candidates were robed during this morning’s ceremony while distinguished artist Conrad Theys, who will be receiving an honorary doctorate in Arts and Design during this evening’s ceremony, was also honoured.

“Thank you for recognising me as one of you. Thank you for recognising me as an artist and as a child of South Africa,” said Theys.

“I feel very honoured. I don’t how to tell you how pleased I am, how lucky I am.”
