Seventy students and their parents who were supposed to attend a ceremony at the university instead joined a Zoom call for a virtual graduation.

The internet event, organised by student Timmy Kwok, included an archival performance of the national anthem sung by Hayley Westenra at an All Black's game and former Prime Minister Helen Cark participating in a pōwhiri.
