Dear Student, GRADUATION CEREMONY – Friday 17 JULY 2015 I am delighted to invite you to attend the Waltham Forest College Annual Graduation Ceremony, to be held on Friday 17th July, at Walthamstow Assembly Hall, Forest Road, E17 4JF (next door to the College). You may bring up to two guests although it is important to note that they must be aged 7 or over. Please do not bring younger children. Please confirm your attendance by Monday 22nd of June 2015, at the latest, if you plan to attend and if you have invited any guests. You can do this by returning the enclosed Confirmation Slip duly completed. The dress code is “smart” which means that no jeans or trainers are allowed for those participating in the Graduation Ceremony. In past years many students have taken the opportunity to dress-up for the occasion. Your qualification entitles you to wear Graduation robes (cap and gown). The cost to hire your graduation robes is £34 (online discounted price) and optional official photography starts at £34 including postage and packaging. If you would like to wear Graduation robes or book an official photograph, you will need to book on line directly with Ede & Ravenscroft and this must be done no later than Friday 26th June 2015. If you book on line, your gowns will be delivered directly to the College in time for the ceremony. Please collect a leaflet for on line booking details from Andrew or Tracey in the Administration Office (213) or visit www.edeandravenscroft.com. You can obtain your graduation robes from 1.00pm on Friday 17 July from the Assembly Hall. Please ensure that your guests know that they need to arrive from 2.30pm and well in advance of 2.50pm. The ceremony will start promptly at 3.00pm which means that there will be no entry for any latecomers. This is regrettable but is necessary in order to avoid any disruption for those who have arrived on time. Attendance at the Graduation Ceremony is free but admission requires a ticket which will be distributed by your Course Tutor to you as soon as practicable. Paul Butler, the Chair of the Corporation (Governing Body), Penny Wycherley, the Principal, and the staff at the College very much look forward to seeing you at the Graduation Ceremony and hope that your family and friends have an enjoyable evening celebrating the successful completion of your course.
