100 Best Stories at Sonop

The management of the Association of Former Sonop Residents (''Bond van Oud-Sonoppers')is currently busy collecting the 100 best stories about life at Sonop, for a publication that will be launched during our centenary celebrations in 2016.

Many former Sonop residents remember interesting things or amusing incidents that happened during their time at this hostel.

One of the stories that we have already received, titled 'Slang in die boom voor Erika', dates from the early 1970s. The author is Pettie Petzer (a first-year student in 1971) and the main character, Flip (Slang) Viljoen, was a first-year student in 1970.

We invite all former residents to write down interesting anecdotes from their time in Sonop and forward them by email to the secretary of the Association of Former Sonop Residents at tonievatsonop [dot] org [dot] za.

Laat die byle huil!
