On 14 December, the formal ceremony for conferring degrees took place at Docklands Stadium in Melbourne. It was amazing and moving. The entertainment would rival a music festival, with the national anthem and the after party entertainment being provided by Jessica Mauboy – among many other things, Australia’s representative at Eurovision.
However, the real stars were, of course, our graduates. Below are some pictures from both the parade in the morning along Swanston St, and of the event at the stadium. Graduates with pink trimming are from the BA (International Studies) whereas those with yellow are from the Master of International Development.
(If you are a graduate who I took a photo or selfie with and you would like a copy of that picture, please email me (Julian), as I only now have your probably-now-too-old student email address).
Congratulations once again!
