After missing out on their graduation ceremonies earlier this year because of the lockdown, Central Otago-based graduates from the Eastern Institute of Technology and Lincoln University had their achievements applauded during the education day at Domaine Thomson Wines last week. Celebrating are (from left) Brenda Stringer, Daniel Brewster, Melissa Gross, Kass Duckworth and James Coleman.
The graduations were to take place in April, but were postponed because of lockdown.

They were each given a round of applause and a bottle of fine wine from Central Otago Wine Growers Association.

The Central Otago competition is to be held on July 16 at Otago Polytechnic Central campus

The winner will represent the region at the national final in Martinborough in October.
