Celebration day for College of West Anglia graduands
Years of hard work paid off for graduates from the College of West Anglia when they collected their qualifications at their graduation ceremony.
It was an emotional ceremony for the 138 graduands, who collected their official certificates at the event held at the King's Lynn Corn Exchange.
College Principal David Pomfret said: 'Today is a day of celebration for you, our graduates.
'It is also a special day for those family members and friends that have been there for you throughout, offering support and maybe a shoulder to cry on.
'I'm sure there were times when some of you felt like giving up and it's at times like this that family and friends are crucial and they deserve thanks and recognition for the role they have played in your success.'
