Graduates and their guests gathered at the exclusive Kingston Room at Rydges Auckland Hotel for an afternoon of inspiration and celebration.

Crown’s December 2013 Graduation Unlucky For Nobody!

Written by Brodie Croucher on January 9th, 2014.      0 comments

The superstitious would say that the date of Friday 13 December 2013 might have been an inauspicious day for Crown’s end of year graduation, but we're not superstitious around here, and this event wasn’t about luck! So, that afternoon, a large group gathered at the salubrious Kingston Room at Rydges Auckland Hotel to celebrate the efforts and achievements of our graduands. This group had worked hard and with the support of their tutors and others, they have all reached an important goal and passed another point on their career journey.
 
Attendees enjoyed a slide show that featured the graduating students enjoying their time at Crown, and were inspired by our guest speaker, Peseta Sam Lotu-Iiga (National MP for Maungakiekie).
 
Another highlight was a performance by Crown’s multi-cultural group made up of continuing and graduating students. Our Campus Manager, Natalie, was part of one of the performances.
 
We would like to thank Taste New Zealand and Stray Travel for sponsoring the fantastic prizes for the top students.

We were again delighted to congratulate all of our graduates. They are a diverse group with a wide range of skills, attributes and work experience; but they have in common a great qualification from Crown! We certainly look forward to tracking these graduates’ career successes in the future.

We were privileged to have Alfred Ngaro as our guest speaker. In 2009, Alfred received the Sir Peter Blake Emerging Leader Award for his contribution to the community. In 2011 he entered parliament as a List MP for the National Party.
