WHAT IS A YEARBOOK?

Its origins and purpose

The yearbook, also called leaver’s book, is a resume of the major events that happened during an academic year. The students’ best memories are immortalized forever on paper: a whole year is told in text and images through the pages.

The yearbook represents a well-established tradition in schools in Anglo-Saxon countries such as the USA, the United Kingdom and Australia. In the last few years, more and more European schools and colleges have also made it their new tradition.

An educational project that gathers

Usually a student class, group or committee is responsible for creating the yearbook. They are often supported by teachers if the yearbook is an initiative of the school. Thanks to its expertise, Yearbook Memories also has the role to support students from the beginning of their project until the printing and delivery of the books.

Making a yearbook is a fun project because it brings students together around a common goal. Indeed, this project involves group work, good organization, funny moments and above all, a lot of creativity!
