Graduation day is an exhilarant day for those who are finally honoured for their academic achievements, and to look forward to the future with the world in the palm of their hands.
Today, students of Waikato University and proud families gathered at Kohinga Mārama Marae to cap their academic success.
Young, old and older were recognised. Education has no boundaries or age limits. Degrees, diplomas, doctorates and other qualifications were awarded today.
These graduates will pave the way for others wanting to rise to the pinnacles of education.
