WE SAY

The Wellingtonian - - Front Page -

It’s grad­u­a­tion time in Welling­ton. The streets are full this week of Vic­to­ria Univer­sity stu­dents and their par­ents cel­e­brat­ing the oc­ca­sion and next week it will be Massey stu­dents’ turn.

The hair sa­lons will be flat out as these young peo­ple pre­pare to look their best as they walk across the stage to re­ceive their hard­earned cer­tifi­cates. Out­fits will have been se­lected to com­ple­ment their robes and var­i­ous coloured hoods and proud mums and dads will gaze down from the bal­cony.

I will be one of those par­ents next week. Fam­ily and friends are com­ing to cel­e­brate with our daugh­ter on the day she for­mally ends four years of study.

We have all been there through the highs and lows of her gain­ing the de­gree she set her sights on in high school. She’s now out in the real world of a 40-hour work­ing week start­ing off in the ca­reer path she has cho­sen.

But next week will be a chance for all our fam­ily to en­joy her suc­cess and the role we all played in sup­port­ing her to get there.
