National paddler Isabelle Li among Republic Polytechnic's nearly 4,500 graduates this year

Among the graduates today were the first cohorts to study Healthcare Administration and Restaurant and Culinary Operations at the poly.

Learning is a continuous process - Culture, Community and Youth Minster Lawrence Wong gave this reminder today (May 19) to graduands of Republic Polytechnic.

"Remember that learning doesn't stop when you graduate. What you learn today may well be obsolete in a few years' time. But if you build on the strong foundations you now have to continually upgrade your skills and expertise, then you will be able to stay abreast of changing industry demands,” Mr Wong said.

Among the graduates today were the first cohorts to study Healthcare Administration and Restaurant and Culinary Operations at the poly.

Nearly 4,500 students will graduate from Republic Polytechnic this year, including national paddler, Isabelle Li, who received the Board Of Governors' Most Outstanding Award.

"It is only possible because I was given a lot of support especially from Republic Poly, Singapore Sports School and the Singapore Table Tennis Association. So the three of the organisations work closely together to come together and look at my schedule and help me just plan the academic schedule, the sporting schedules and see how they could come together," Li said.
