Ceremony Day

To ensure that the ceremonies are conducted in a safe manner, Safe Management Measures (SMMs) will be put in place. SIT is monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely and should there be further changes to the ceremony, graduands will be informed via their SIT email and SIT website.

On the ceremony day, all graduands and guests are required to adhere to the following SMMs:

  1. Submission of SIT Health Declaration
  2. Check-in using TraceTogether SafeEntry token/app
  3. Completion of full COVID-19 vaccination regimen under the national vaccination programme (i.e. received both doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech/Comirnaty or Moderna vaccine or any of the vaccines on the WHO Emergency Use Listing (EUL)) at least 2 weeks before the ceremony date;  OR possess a valid negative result on a pre-event test taken in the past 24 hours before the end of the ceremony session* 
  4. Mask-wearing, no inter-zonal social interactions and other prevailing safe management measures at the ceremony venue

*Attendees who have recovered from COVID-19 within the last 270 days are required to provide documentary proof for verification before entry.

If any of the following applies to you, please do not attend the ceremony as you will be denied entry to the venue.

  • You are feeling unwell, having fever or respiratory symptoms such as cough, runny nose or sore throat.
  • You are currently serving a Stay-Home Notice (SHN), self-isolation and/or waiting for a COVID-19 swab test result.

For individuals who have received a Health Risk Warning (HRW), you are required to present a photo of your negative ART self-test result with the date indicated on the kit.

These SMMs are accurate as of the date of posting and are subject to changes. Graduands may refer to the Student Intranet for more details regarding pre-event testing.

Graduands and guests should arrive at the time designated for the respective seating zones. Please be seated by 9:15 AM / 1:15 PM / 5:15 PM for the graduands’ briefing.

All attendees are required to complete SafeEntry check-in via the TraceTogether app or token, SIT Health Declaration, mandatory bag checks and present proof of vaccination status or valid pre-event test results to enter the venue. Food, drinks, flowers and balloons will not be allowed into the venue. In view of the SMMs in place to maintain a safe ceremony environment, there will be no event booths, photo walls and reception at the venue.

As the entry to the venue is strictly by ticket only, Graduand Admission Card (for graduands) and Guest Invitation Card (for graduands’ guests) must be presented at the point of entry. Graduands are required to wear their academic dress before entering the venue as there will not be a robing area.

Each registered graduand and guest is allocated a seat number in the Theatre. The seat number and allocated seating zone can be found on the Graduand Admission Card and Guest Invitation Card. Please sit at your assigned seat and refrain from swapping seats. Each seating zone will be separated by a physical spacing of at least 3 metres. All attendees are requested to remain seated after entering the Theatre.

At the end of the ceremony, please remain seated as the ushers will lead you to exit the Theatre by zones. To minimize intermingling among zones, there is no reception after the ceremony.
