Year 13 students from St George’s International School celebrated their graduation and attended their prom this month, reflecting on their academic journey.
The 44 students and their parents attended the graduation ceremony in the school’s auditorium where Stefan Ziegenhagen, chairman-elect of the board, spoke about the value of flexibility and adaptability in a global society and wished the students good luck in their future careers.
Principal Dr. Christian Barkei commended the students for their resilience and positive attitude despite the challenges of the past two pandemic years.
“We have certainly sought to educate you, our students, to be at home in an international environment, comfortable with different cultures and languages, flexible, tolerant and encompassing a genuine sense of the international spirit. You should also having acquired along the way a good foundation in academic subjects and hopefully – evident in your college course choices – a genuine sense of intellectual curiosity and wonder,” said Dr Barkei.
Mr. Mark Fleet, Head of Secondary and Deputy Principal, presented each student with their school leaving certificate and congratulated them on a bright future.
