Te Rauparaha Arena 2022

2022 Graduation Events

Due to the guidelines of our Covid-19 Protection Framework, Whitireia and WelTec have had to revise plans for Graduation Events for 2022.

We will not be proceeding with a formalised ceremony at Te Rauparaha Arena in Porirua or at the Lower Hutt Event Centre in Lower Hutt. However, if you have registered to graduate, we are offering you the opportunity to have a professional photograph taken in your qualification regalia at the same venue and on the same day that was allocated for your Graduation event.

Your class/group will be allotted a specific time throughout the day for you to attend. These sessions will be scheduled and follow strict Covid Guidelines. If you choose to participate, please ensure you wear a mask, scan into the venue, and provide your vaccine pass.

If you have already paid for your regalia this will be refunded to you before the event as there will now be no cost for regalia in 2022. You will have the opportunity to collect your regalia prior to the event. The date and times will be advised to you in a separate email along with Covid Guidelines.

Your qualification certificate will be posted to you prior to the event to the address you have advised on the application you submitted. Please advise if you have a new postal address.

We acknowledge this change to our graduation events in 2022 will be disappointing news. We appreciate your understanding and support as we endeavour to ensure everyone is kept safe.

If you have any questions regarding graduation, please email graduation@whitireia.ac.nz or graduation@weltec.ac.nz
