Hundreds of students didn't let the bad weather rain on their parade as they celebrated their graduation from Witt yesterday.
Almost 300 students, across 21 courses, received their degrees and diplomas at a ceremony at the TSB Showplace last night. Engineering, nursing, business and journalism were among the degrees awarded.
A graduation street parade was held before the ceremony.
It was the first such ceremony in which the graduands could choose to graduate in a black traditional gown, a korowai or in appropriate attire.
