May graduation celebrations

Thursday 18 May 2023 1:28pm


Congratulations to all former Biochemistry students graduating this month! Tino pai rawa atu!

The department had an informal graduation event on Saturday morning for graduands and their families, the first we have held in our renovated tearoom. Large glass panelled doors between the tearoom and what used to be the seminar room (now the George Petersen room) were opened up to provide a large area for everyone to gather in and enjoy.

Head of Department Professor Peter Dearden spoke to those gathered, and presented graduands that attended with flowers from the department. Many teaching and academic staff were also able to attend and celebrate. Graduands and their families were then able to make their way outside to take photos in the glorious sunshine around campus before heading to the formal graduation ceremony.
