There were cheers, applause and tears as the graduating Year 13 students, families and teachers came together at Nord Anglia International School (NAIS) Pudong for a special Cap & Gown Ceremony on 20 May.

nais-pudong-graduationDressed in full graduation regalia, the 49 students made an impressive sight as they made their way from the IB Academy, their home for the past two years. Led by Bevan Graham, Head of the IB Academy, and Kathryn Watson, Higher Education Advisor, the students were greeted by a standing ovation as they entered the auditorium.

The audience heard firstly from Dinah Hawtree, Head of Secondary, who spoke of the students’ hard work and dedication, their persistence and teamwork, and the exciting future and responsibilities that lay ahead for them. Graham was next at the podium, speaking to the students of their responsibility as stewards of the future of our planet, and encouraged them to grasp every opportunity to make a difference. He also introduced each of the students individually, recognizing their personal journey through the IB and their plans for the future, and invited them to come to the stage to receive their graduation certificates from Principal Wallace.

A highlight of the evening came when two students, Alison Li and Adriano Arguedas, came to the stage to speak on behalf of the assembled students. Eloquently and maturely, they each recalled their IB journey, the ups and downs, trials and triumphs. Most of all, the message they delivered was about the strong and united family of students this cohort had been, providing friendship and support in difficult times. In a very poignant moment, Adriano thanked the parents in the audience for giving him this wonderful extended family.

Principal Wallace’s closing remarks focused on the contributions the students had made to the NAIS Pudong community, their excellent academic performance and the role they had played as leaders of the student body.
