Graduating in COVID Times

By Ellyne Chin

 

 

The times of COVID-19 are hard as due to safe distancing measures, not many events could be held. This was the case for the class of 2020 as they had no graduation ceremony.

 

In 2021, the graduates were fortunate that the ceremony was timed well and held just before Phase 2 (Heightened Alert). To the graduates of 2020/21, the warmest of congratulations and best wishes for your future.
