Course Commencement

National Wine Centre 12 February 2016

Master of Ceremonies Dr George Brown welcomed new and returning students to ICHM’s 46th Course Commencement in 23 years. Never before had so many Certificates of Merit and Certificates of Academic Achievement been awarded at the one ceremony. 

Course Commencement is the occasion at which academic success is celebrated, along with successes in industry.

In his opening remarks, Dr Brown noted that since start-up around 2500 students have been at Course Commencement, along with staff, family and friends.

Chief Executive Gerald Lipman provided the official welcome, saying, ‘Normally in the hospitality industry we are providing the service, but tonight you students are the guests. You are the stars. We’re proud. The students of ICHM have done great work. Welcome and have a good evening.’

Christy Lee and David Utschink gave the welcome address on behalf of students, saying,  ‘ICHM becomes your family and the friends you make and memories you create will stay with you forever.’
