We could hear a soul-awakening Vietnamese song by Emma, accompanied by Limit at the guitar. Harry recited a Chinese poem and there came Parnian with an English poem by e.e. cummings. Aya and Pasha joined the stage to thank the teachers and the form mistress.
The student’s performances were followed by the congratulating speech of the principal Mr Steve. The principal addressed each and every graduating student by their names, highlighting their strong points and academic achievements for which Avicenna College will always be proud of these novel graduates who have contributed so much to the Avicenna Community, and who stood their ground in excellence despite the difficulties caused by the global pandemic that overshadowed 2 years of their studies. In spite of all these odds, they made it and now, 10 out of these 10 students are soon to be university citizens at universities in Hungary, England, Turkey and even in Hawaii which makes this group of graduates a very special one.
The closing theme was to hand out the certificates to the graduates accompanied by an intense round of applause from the rows of former fellow students in the corridor. At the end of the ceremony our celebrated 10, the star of the day and their family members were served with an ample variety of selected culinary excellence in the AIC restaurant, courtesy of the father of Sandy, our graduating student who provided the lunch.
