UCOL GRADUATION 2018 / 3


Our Graduates

At UCOL we celebrate and value our graduates. They are doing amazing things and making contributions all over the globe. Here are some great examples.

INA DEVINE E ARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION GR ADUATE

JADE BOERBOOM

Coming from a large family and having worked babysitting jobs throughout high school, Ina Devine felt it was natural for her to work with children.

After graduating Ina taught at Wellington’s Capital City Preschool as a paternal leave cover, before picking up a permanent role at Miramar North Kindergarten.

SCIENCE GRADUATE

Ina studied the Bachelor of Teaching (Early Childhood Education) through UCOL’s partnership with the Open Polytechnic. Distance learning suited her because it gave her the flexibility to work during the day and study at her own pace.

“I love my career and working so closely with young children and their whanau,” she says.

While at UCOL, Ina got to lead an Early Childhood Education taster course for local Year 10 students. “Being given this responsibility was an honour and an incredible experience. I was able to introduce these students to the wonderful world of Early Childhood Education, share my passion for teaching, and give them an insight into how young children learn and develop and how we can guide this.”

“I LOVE MY CAREER AND WORKING SO CLOSELY WITH YOUNG CHILDREN AND THEIR WHANAU”

4/ UCOL GRADUATION 2018

In the future, Ina would like to take her studies further. “I want to complete a Master of Education within the next 5 years. I also want to travel overseas to teach under different curriculum programmes to gain more knowledge and experience. I’ve always seen myself going beyond the teaching side of the job, potentially studying the psychology side of early education, or moving into writing policy and training other teachers.”

Science graduate Jade Boerboom started working at Lion Dairy and Drinks just one week after finishing at UCOL, and is now looking to become a Science teacher. Jade says UCOL’s National Diploma in Science programme gave her a good understanding of a variety of disciplines and prepared her well for employment. “You get a taste of everything. I was able to try a range of things and find what I liked the most and carry on with it. My favourite was microbiology, which I did at Lion.” “Science is such a good field to get into in the Manawatu. As long as you study and stick to it, there are so many opportunities that can come out of studying Science at UCOL.” As a Technical Assistant for Lion Dairy and Drinks, Jade’s main responsibility was testing Yoplait yogurts for microbial growth, making sure that the products met the specifications before they were released. Jade is now studying towards a Bachelor in Biological Sciences with a Psychology minor at Massey University, with the aim of becoming a secondary school teacher within the next six years. “I like the idea of teaching at high school because of the stage of development the students are at. I know a lot people find it tough at high school, and I feel like I’d be able to support students through that as a teacher.” Jade is also working part-time in an after school care programme to build up some practical skills to help with teaching.


KELVIN GILBERT & AMY FOWLER PHOTOGRAPHY & APPLIED VISUAL IMAGING GRADUATES

Since they were students at UCOL, Amy Fowler and Kelvin Gilbert had talked about setting up their own creative agency. Now with their business Origin Eight, they’ve produced work for the likes of Sport Manawatu, the Aids Foundation, and UCOL. Having graduated with a Diploma in Photographic Imaging, Kelvin has gone on to become a Grand Master of the NZ Institute of Professional Photography. In 2017 he was named Overseas Photographer of the Year at the Australian Professional Photography Awards. Amy, a Bachelor of Applied Visual Imaging graduate, has worked as a graphic designer and photographer for Destination Manawatu’s The Page magazine, created cinema adverts, and worked as a freelance designer. Origin Eight has been operating since June 2017, providing photography, video production, graphic design, website design, motion graphics, and communications. “I felt like I needed a push and this place has really pushed us,” says Kelvin.

TO HEAR MORE FROM OUR GRADUATES VISIT UCOL.AC.NZ

They both enjoy the freedom of having their own business, choosing their projects, and watching the business grow. “For me the best thing about owning and operating your own business is that you reap what you sow. You put in those hard yards, and when you get good customer feedback it’s a real feel good moment,” says Amy. Recently, Origin Eight handled the photography and created the videos for UCOL’s Make a Difference campaign. In the future Amy and Kelvin want to expand the services they offer, bring on new employees, and eventually set up offices in other parts of the country.

ARJUN SINGH COOKERY GR ADUATE

Arjun Singh came to UCOL wanting to expand his culinary skills. Now he’s working at one of New Zealand’s most renowned hotels. After finishing his schooling in India, Arjun worked at Pizza Hut before moving onto a curry kitchen. With a love of cooking and a desire to branch out into new cuisines, Arjun enrolled in Hospitality and Cookery programmes at UCOL’s Whanganui campus. Arjun found the programme to be an eye-opener, as he got to work with food he had little to no experience with back home.

“Cooking things like steak and pork were very new for me. In New Zealand, people often eat medium rare steak so that was an interesting thing to learn and put into practice.” As part of his programme, Arjun interned at the famous Chateau Tongariro Hotel for four weeks. He made such a good impression that the Head Chef offered him a job once he finished his studies. Now Arjun is working as a Commis Chef for the Chateau’s Pihanga Café. “I’m living in the Chateau, so I get to wake up every day to an awesome view of the Tongariro National Park.” “I’m very happy to be in the position I am, and I want to keep learning and gradually work my way up.”

UCOL GRADUATION 2018 / 5


Academic Regalia

Modern day academic regalia originates from the High Middle Ages, the 12th and 13th centuries when early universities adopted traditions arising from the church. Today’s academic dress of the gown, hood and cap, has origins in the clerical dress of that era. CAP The trencher or mortar board arises from the preferred form of head dress of the laity of the medieval period. There are two styles; the bonnet and the trencher. UCOL utilises the trencher head dress in its academic regalia. It has a hard top square above a soft cap with a tassel fastened from the middle, which is worn on the left side once the wearer has graduated. The trencher is only worn by those who have been conferred with a degree.

GOWNS The gowns are based on the types of gowns used widely by both the clergy and laity of the church in the Middle Ages. Like most New Zealand institutions, the UCOL gowns are based on the University of Cambridge gowns. The UCOL Certificate, Diploma and Bachelor gowns have long, full wide-mouthed sleeves, while the Masters gown has origins in the Tudor period, with its long closed sleeves with a pocket-like extension. It has been suggested that these pockets may have originally been used to store paper and food. A korowai (cloak) may be worn by graduands or staff members over the Cambridge gown. For degree Graduands the hood is displayed over the top of the cloak.

HOODS The hood is a remnant of the cowl worn by monks to cover their head and shoulders in order to keep warm. When not used for warmth, it was thrown back to hang down the back, as it is worn today. The tail, which was probably longer, was used to tie around the neck in order to keep the hood on. Only degree holders wear a hood in addition to the gown, with each degree having a designated colour. The size and shape of the UCOL hoods, like most New Zealand institutions, are based on the University of Cambridge Master of Arts hoods. The hoods are the most colourful aspect of the regalia. Curiously, the higher the degree, the less ornate the hood usually becomes. Bachelor degrees typically have a trim of either fur or braid, in addition to the colourful hood lining. This is thought to have originated from the fact that the more senior members of monastic orders were able to sit closer to the fire, hence had less need for fur trimmed hoods which were required for warmth by the more junior members who were further from the fire. The Bachelor with Honours Degree dispenses with the fur or braid, using a plain ribbon trim, while the Masters degree has no trim to the hood.

SASH / STOLE The sash/stole had its origins in the Middle Ages as an ecclesiastical vestment in the shape of a narrow strip of material worn around the shoulders. At UCOL, Diploma holders wear a sash of gold satin and green and gold braid over the top of their gown, where Graduate or Post Graduate holders wear a coloured stole.

THE OFFICIAL AND ACADEMIC PROCESSION REGALIA Members of the official and academic procession wear the academic dress of the institution at which they were awarded their highest degree. The Chair of Council wears UCOL’s ceremonial regalia. Those graduating at UCOL wear the following academic regalia: Certificates .......................................

Being the largest of UCOL’s four campuses, Palmerston North graduates study a vast array of subjects, from Trades to Arts, Health and Sciences to Business. 2017 was another big year full of success and progress. Incredible work continued to be produced by students and staff in our multi-million dollar Regional Trades and Technology Centre, with students receiving honours at the National Woodskills Competition and New Zealand Master Joinery Awards. Students in the Arts and Design area continued to push the boundaries of creativity, picking up awards at New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography Iris Awards and the Resene Total Colours Awards. A group of Bachelor of Applied Visual Imaging students also designed a new logo for the New Zealand Collective Training Centre (NZCTC), part of the New Zealand Defence Force. Expect more great things to come out of the School of Creative Industries in 2018 with the establishment of the new Bachelor of Creative Media. UCOL continued to build on its reputation as a high performing institution by hosting a series of public lectures on the Palmerston North Campus. This new initiative is expanding in 2018 to include the Wairarapa and Whanganui Campuses. Palmerston North is known for its significant international community, and the UCOL campus is no exception. Fittingly, the campus played host to the Flavour of Cultures Festival, which featured music, dance, food, and other customs from around the globe. The biennial International Student Barometer, which surveys international students from 185 institutions, saw UCOL score 93% overall student satisfaction, ahead of the New Zealand polytechnic average of 87.9%. Students praised UCOL’s small class sizes, expert lecturers, quality teaching and strong course content.

Palmerston North 2018 HONOURS AWARDS

This year, we have five recipients for UCOL Council Honours Awards in Palmerston North. The Honorary Fellowship is UCOL’s highest honorary award, and is presented to individuals who have demonstrated an outstanding and noteworthy contribution to the well-being and benefit of society; UCOL; and/or their field of endeavour.

PROFESSOR TOM PREBBLE, HONORARY FELLOWSHIP Tom Prebble is an education consultant and UCOL Council member, who has been instrumental in facilitating quality assurance across the tertiary sector.

The Institutional Medal is presented to individuals who have been employees of UCOL, and have made a significant contribution to UCOL or their field of endeavour over and above normal duties.

CAROLINE ROBINSON, HONORARY ASSOCIATE In 2000, the Palmerston North City Council and Massey University, as part of the Town and Gown liaison, approached Caroline Robinson to act as Town Crier to add some pomp and ceremony to the University’s Graduation celebrations. Tasked with delivering a congratulatory cry through the CBD and leading the Graduation Precessions, Caroline’s efforts were so wellreceived that the Mayor formalised her Town Crier role. Since then, Caroline has become a fixture at Graduation Ceremonies for UCOL, Massey University and IPU, as well as many community events such as the Festival of Cultures and the Christmas Parade. As Town Crier, Caroline acts as a Goodwill Ambassador for Palmerston North, welcoming dignitaries to the city, promoting the city as a world class conference and leisure destination, and announcing new NZ citizens at the Citizenship Ceremonies. In 2001 Caroline competed at the World Championships for Town Criers in America, where she placed 14th overall and was awarded the title World’s Best New Town Crier. In 2004 she travelled to Chester in England to compete in the worlds inaugural Women’s only Town Crier Championship, which she won. Caroline is the current National Champion Town Crier, and has organised the National Championships on two occasions here in Palmerston North. Caroline is also the first women Town Crier to be voted in as President of The Honourable Guild of Town Criers of New Zealand.

GRADUATION CEREMONY

1.30pm

Tuesday 27th March

Carterton Events Centre, Carterton UCOL’s Wairarapa Campus plays an important role in the wider Wairarapa community, producing graduates in subjects such as Business Administration, Hairdressing, Beauty, Cookery, Early Childhood Education, Nurse Education, Automotive, and Construction. The campus also provides resources and teaching for distance students in a number of Open Polytechnic programmes, making higher education more accessible for people from all walks of life. The Wairarapa Campus has strong ties to the community and local iwi, and continued to build on that in 2017. As part of Newsnet.live Wairarapa’s Living Through project, the campus hosted a talk from Mental Health advocate Mike King. The talk attracted more than 100 young people and was very well received.

The campus continued its relationship with Wairarapa REAP (Rural Education Activities Programmes) in 2017. The REAP-organised Adult Learners’ Week Awards have become an annual highlight on campus, with six staff and students receiving awards for excellence in teaching and learning last year. The Hairdressing staff and students teamed up with their Whanganui counterparts to hold a History of Hair competition on the Wairarapa campus, after holding a three-campus competition in Palmerston North in previous years. This competition is a great initiative for our talented hairdressing students to research and recreate hairstyles from throughout the ages.

UCOL GRADUATION 2018 / 23

2018 HONOURS AWARDS This year, we have three recipients for UCOL Council Honours Awards in the Wairarapa. The Honorary Associate award is presented to individuals who have made a significant contribution, over and above normal duties, to UCOL or the wider community of which UCOL is a part. The Institutional Medal is presented to individuals who have been employees of UCOL, and have made a significant contribution to UCOL or their field of endeavour over and above normal duties.

GARRY DANIELL, HONORARY ASSOCIATE Garry Daniell is the former Mayor of Masterton and long-time supporter of the Masterton and Wairarapa communities. Garry served as Mayor of Masterton from 2007 to 2013. Prior to that he spent 18 years as both a Masterton District Councillor and Deputy Mayor. A Masterton businessman, Garry has a keen interest in the economic development of the town and district, which included a role in the Masterton Business Development Group. His great-grandfather, Charles Daniell, commenced his building business in Masterton in 1880, and Garry followed successive generations of his family in developing the timber processing and hardware retailing that evolved. He became a Director of Mitre 10 New Zealand and expanded the operation of the Masterton Mitre 10 franchise. Retaining the region’s heritage has been a high priority for Garry, who for many years has chaired the Wairarapa Historic Places Trust, which embedded the Heritage List in the Combined Wairarapa District Plan. He was responsible for the formation of the Wairarapa Archive, the leading provincial archive in Australasia. Garry was a Trustee of the Masterton Lands Trust from 1988 to 2016, during which the organisation was responsible for major growth within Masterton, and consequently support for education and the arts within the area. He was an early advocate for tertiary facilities in the Wairarapa. Garry has a considerable interest in health services for the Wairarapa. He helped lead the “Hands Around Our Hospital” protests and has chaired the Wairarapa Community Health Trust since 1988. He is a past president of the Masterton Rotary Club and was accorded the honour of a Paul Harris Fellowship.

LOU COOK, INSTITUTIONAL MEDAL Lou Cook, or Aunty Lou as she is widely known in the Wairarapa community, is the Kaikaranga and Kuia for all UCOL Wairarapa Campus powhiri/hui, and is recognised for the significant role she has played over an extended period of time in Graduation ceremonies. Aunty Lou (Ngati Porou and Ngati Kahungunu) is always available to provide cultural support and advice to UCOL staff, and acts as an advocate for Ma-ori in the community. She also supports students in a pastoral care role on campus and in the community. Aunty Lou is active in the Carterton District Council and attends all hui on behalf of Hurunuiorangi Marae. She regularly advocates and promotes Ma-ori issues and ensures Ma-ori are following Tikanga with organisations in the Wairarapa. Aunty Lou is a life member of Te Ropu Wahine Ma-ori Toko i te Ora (the Ma-ori Women’s Welfare League, MWWL) and is active within the Ikaroa region. Across the country the MWWL plays a big role in Ma-ori community development and leadership, particularly around whanau and children.

MIKE KAWANA, INSTITUTIONAL MEDAL In recognition of his extended contribution to UCOL graduation ceremonies over a long period of time, UCOL acknowledges Mike Kawana. Mike Kawana is a respected leader and Kaikorero (Speaker) of Rangita-ne O Wairarapa, and Kaumatua and Cultural Advisor to staff and students at UCOL’s Wairarapa Campus. He receives the Institutional Medal for the role he has played in leading and participating in UCOL Graduation ceremonies. Mike also teaches Te Reo Ma-ori from Level 1 to 4 at UCOL. Previously, he taught at Wairarapa Community Polytechnic. He also provides tikanga wananga programmes throughout Ngati Hamua hapu and Rangita-ne iwi/community. Mike is a very well-known figure in the Wairarapa, and has contributed immensely to the rohe/region. He acts as Kaumatua and Cultural Advisor to the Masterton District Council, Taratahi Agricultural Training Centre, Wairarapa District Health Board Iwi Relationship Board, New Zealand Police, Te Hauora Runanga O Wairarapa, The Department of Corrections, Te Ore Ore Marae, and Pukaha/Mount Bruce. Mike is considered by his people of Ngati Hamua and Rangitane a tohunga reo, tikanga and kawa (Ma-ori language, customs, and protocols expert) who makes a huge contribution to building communities, and sharing things of Te Ao Ma-ori /Ma-ori world to increase understanding and relationships. Mike is also a composer and restorer of Rangitane haka and waiata, and has composed waiata for UCOL, the Waitangi Tribunal, LIANZA, Pukaha/Mount Bruce and many schools and Kapa Haka Groups throughout the Wairarapa, Manawatu, and Wellington Regions. Mike is also a great storyteller and holder of Wairarapa Ma-ori history and whakapapa.

Our 2018 Graduands FACULTY OF HUMANITIES AND BUSINESS SCHOOL OF EDUCATION

DOUG MENDE MANAGING DIRECTOR OF MENDE BIOTECH LTD Doug has a background in environmental science and conservation, going from Ranger to Founder and Managing Director of his own company Mende Biotech Ltd. In 1999 Doug started his company by looking at Bioactives in Native plants because of New Zealand’s unique ecology. He found work done on an extract from recycled Totara called Totarol and how this was very active against bacteria, particularly superbugs. Doug developed a patented extraction method, to look at the commercialization into the world market. He started with cosmetics and even got a supply contract with L’Oreal in France. In 2008 Doug won a New Zealand prize in Science for his groundbreaking work with Totarol. In the last few years, Mende Biotech has been working on delivery systems which can transport Totarol as a replacement for antibiotics. The company is working on animal and human health projects, including setting up companies to deal with Mastitis and Metritis infections in the bovine industry.

GRADUATION CEREMONY

12.30pm

Thursday 29th March

Royal Wanganui Opera House, Whanganui

With the River City being a hub for creativity and innovation, UCOL’s Whanganui Campus is a breeding ground for excellence in Design and Arts. 2017 was another year full of success for staff and students, with staff being winners of, or finalists in, prestigious awards including the Portage Ceramic Award, the National Contemporary Art Award and the Parkin Drawing Prize. Fashion Design student Gienipha Tutaki had the distinct honour of showcasing her work at New Zealand Fashion Week. Adding to its standing in the Arts industry, the campus hosted the 2017 Aotearoa New Zealand Association of Art Educator’s (ANZAAE) Conference. This was a mammoth task that brought together Art teachers from all across the country.

The Whanganui campus has a strong contingent of Hair and Beauty students, with staff and students receiving awards at the New Zealand Association of Registered Hairdressers Whanganui competition. Our cookery and hospitality students were also kept busy throughout the year, catering events on campus and in the community, including Graduation and the Ma-ori Business Awards. Some cookery students were also given the opportunity to sell their creations at the River Traders Market, much to the delight of many. The largest programme in Whanganui is Nursing, and like the Palmerston North and Wairarapa Campuses, the Whanganui Campus continues to produce quality graduates, with a 100 percent pass rate last year in the Nursing State final exam. Before the end of the year 90% of the Bachelor of Nursing students had gained employment.

Established in 2014 to meet a niche demand in photography in Newmarket, the UCOL Institute of Commercial Photography in Auckland (UICPA) is celebrating graduands who have completed the New Zealand Diploma in Photography (Level 5) and the Diploma in Photographic Imaging (Level 6). With UICPA having strong industry connections in Auckland, students have had the opportunity to gain valuable industry experience and build relationships over the duration of their studies.

UICPA graduates apply a range of conceptual, creative and technical skills in their employment or self-employment. These include basic business skills, a strong portfolio focus, and exploring other related areas of the visual imaging industry such as design, visual journalism, and video. UICPA has produced many talented photographers, with students receiving honours at the Canon Eyecon Awards, New Zealand Geographic Photographer of the Year competition, and the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography Iris Awards over the years.

UICPA’s facilities were designed with creativity and innovation in mind and included photography studios, collaborative group workspaces, meeting pods, industry standard Mac labs, and design facilities. UICPA’s connections with suppliers also ensured that students had access to top quality equipment.
