Corona Virus Annnouncement

Corona virus update: 12nd June 2020

Due to the unfortunate situation with regards Coronavirus (Covid-19), the College has made the difficult decision to cancel the graduation ceremony in 2020. We came to this conclusion, to prioritize the health and safety of students and their families attending the ceremony and to fulfil our social duty to minimize the risk of the spread of Corona-virus (COVID-19).

Recognizing that graduation is a very important milestone for graduates, as it is a period of self-reflection and an opportunity to renew their determination for new principles, we decided to organize a photo shoot for our eligible graduates.

 

The following categories of students are eligible for the graduate photo shoot:

 

  • Students who expect to complete the graduation requirements of their program of study by the end of Spring 2020, Summer 2020 or Fall 2020.

 

  • Students who completed the graduation requirements of their program of study following the end of Fall 2019.

 

Graduates should follow the next steps:

 

  • Purchase a coupon at the Reception Office
  • Book an appointment with the photographer
  • Upload your photo on our Social Media

 

Thank you for your understanding and support.
