Student newspaper of the NWU-Puk since 1946

The first edition of Wapad was published on 12 April 1946 under the direction of Chris Hattingh. Wapad is still written for students by students. During the years it stayed relevant as it moved through the hands of sequential editors. More about Wapad.

When this database is completed it will provide electronic copies from the first issue in 1946 until 2009. Wapad is available online at http://issuu.com/wapad from the issue dated 7 April 2011.
