Last week, the five polytechnics and the Singapore University of Social Sciences held their convocation ceremonies.
In his speech at a Temasek Polytechnic ceremony on May 3, Second Minister for Education Maliki Osman highlighted TP’s Campus Care Network Special Crisis Fund, which was set up in April last year to support students whose families were in financial difficulty.
A large number of mature students also graduated this year.
Republic Polytechnic, for example, saw its largest batch of 790 Continuing Education and Training (CET) graduates.
At Singapore Polytechnic’s ceremony, principal and chief executive officer Soh Wai Wah congratulated the 6,054 graduates and spoke of a commitment his institution was making to them to be part of their education for life. “Your graduation today is but the beginning of a new long-term relationship with SP,” he said. “We want to be your partner in your lifelong learning journey.”
