Published On May 3, 2019 | By Amy | News, Opportunities and Events

Congratulations to all of our graduates in Science, Agriculture, Business & Law. Thank you for joining us for our first May Graduation ceremony today. 

If you are due to graduate tomorrow, Saturday 4th May, as a student in Medicine, Health, Psychology, Humanities, Arts, Social Sciences or Education, then you’ll find all the information you might need below. 

We understand that this is a special and important day for you and any guests you have attending, and want to ensure you are both safe and comfortable whilst enjoying your celebrations. Given this, a decision will be made at 7.30am tomorrow (Saturday), as to whether the ceremonies will take place on the lawns of Booloominbah, or indoors in Lazenby Hall. 

Keep an eye on the Ed.Une Facebook page for all updates. 

Please rest assured that our staff are working tirelessly to ensure that everything for your day will run smoothly either way, and that there will be many people on hand to help direct you or answer any questions that may arise. Information about both options can be found below so that you are able to prepare as best as possible. 

 

Outdoor Ceremony – Fine weather:

If the weather is fine, one outdoor graduation ceremony will take place for all graduands on the lawns of Booloominbah.

8:00am – Graduand registration will open 

9:45am – Registration will close

10:15am – Graduands must have found their allocated place and be seated ready for the beginning of the ceremony

10:30am – The ceremony will begin

 

Indoor Ceremony – Wet or stormy weather:

If we make the decision that there is a significant chance of rain and storms, then in order to ensure that everyone remains safe and dry, the Graduation Ceremony will be divided in two and both will take place in Lazenby Hall. This decision will be announced at 7.30am via our Ed.Une Facebook page

The morning Graduation ceremony for Medicine, Health & Psychology will commence at 10.30am.

The afternoon Graduation ceremony for Humanities, Arts, Social Sciences & Education will commence at 2.30pm.
