St George’s International School’s Year 13 students celebrated their graduation and attended their prom this month, reflecting on their educational journey.

The 44 students and their parents attended the graduation ceremony at the school’s auditorium where Stefan Ziegenhagen, Chair-Elect of the Board of Governors, spoke of the value of flexibility and adaptability in a global society and wished the students well in their future careers.

Principal Dr Christian Barkei commended the students on their resilience and positive attitudes despite the challenges of the past two pandemic years.

“We have certainly aimed to educate you, our students, to be at home in an international environment, comfortable with different cultures and languages, flexible, tolerant and encompassing a true sense of international-mindedness. You should also have collected along the way a good grounding in academic subjects and hopefully – evident in your choices of university courses – a genuine sense of intellectual curiosity and wonder,” Dr Barkei said.

Mr Mark Fleet, Head of Secondary and Vice-Principal, presented each student with their School Leaving Certificate and congratulated them on bright futures ahead.
