On 21 November 2022, Rhodes University said goodbye to its retirees at a special tree planting celebration event hosted on the Barratt Theatre Complex’s lawns.

“It is appropriate for Rhodes University to honour you today. Working with you all was an honour, and we will always cherish you,” said Human Resources Manager of Learning & Development, Mr Schalk van der Merwe. "You have been outstanding in the functioning of the institution.”

The Vice-Chancellor of Rhodes University, Professor Sizwe Mabizela, was among the attendees. He spoke briefly before inviting Ms Nasiphi Tafane from the Human Resources Division to read retiree citations.

Prof Mabizela called on Professor Peter Clayton, outgoing Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Research and Innovation, to do the honours of unveiling the Natal Mahogany tree’s plaque, which would serve as a symbol of honour for the 2022 retirees. Prof Clayton is this year’s longest-serving retiree with 40 years of service at Rhodes University.
