THE University of Papua New Guinea (UPNG) will have its 65th graduation ceremony but it would be done virtually, an official says.
UPNG Chancellor Robert Igara said as the country’s premiere learning institution, it was important to lead by example and honour the students and their families remotely.
A virtual graduation for the class of 2020 would be held from Oct 12-16 where the university would come together as a community to honour the students for their hard-earned degrees.
“While we must be separated at this moment of celebration, the spirit of community has never been stronger,” Igara said.
“We will live stream this event and each school will host their own online ceremony and we hope that your families can gather in your homes, and around your family gathering platforms to host your celebration like no other.”
The graduation ceremony was supposed to be held in March but due to the Covid-19 pandemic and per the Higher Education Minister’s directive, the ceremony was postponed.
The UPNG council and executives recognised and acknowledged the sacrifices that so many parents and guardians had made despite no graduation ceremony.
