Graduation this year was held at the Clagett Auditorium, Canterbury Cathedral Lodge in the afternoon of July 12th.
It was a happy and joyous occasion for the graduates and their families and friends.
Graduands collected their gowns from HQ before making their way to the Auditorium to get robed. A short rehearsal later and the guests were allowed into the Auditorium. Graduands marched into the hall to the regal strains of the Trumpet Voluntary, followed by faculty, and dignitaries.
This year’s Honoris Causa recipient was Dr Yusuf Abdul-Jobbar, who was unable to make it at the last minute. A recorded message was shown on his behalf.
Dr Philip Armstrong, CEO of the Australian Counselling Association (ACA), was honoured as Student of the Year for his seminal work on Professional Counselling Supervision which he did as a requirement for his PhD. The work has been lauded by academics and practitioners in Australia, Asia and the United Kingdom.
Following the event, a photoshoot took place in the hall as well as out in the gardens of the Lodge, overlooking the majestic Canterbury Cathedral.
Dinner was held at 7pm at the Abbots Barton Hotel, a charming and lovingly-restored building. Here, graduates and their loved ones took time to mingle and network with each other before leaving with stellar memories of a splendid day.
