Te Herenga Waka - Victoria University of Wellington Graduates

Former students of Tararua College graduating from Victoria University of Wellington

It is with pleasure that I enclose a list of your former pupils who have graduated from Victoria University between June 2019 and May 2020. We join with you in acknowledging and celebrating the students’ wonderful success.

2020 has turned out to be a challenging year for all of us. Due to lockdown Victoria University was unable to hold their usual graduation ceremonies in May. However, all those due to graduate at that time had their degrees conferred in absentia. Happily, they have been able to reschedule ceremonies and those who wish to will hopefully be able to walk across the stage in September.
