dulwich-suzhou-h-graduationFriday 30 May was a big day for 21 students who celebrated their graduation from Dulwich College Suzhou as the Class of 2014.

The day was celebrated with a Graduation Ceremony attended by parents and invited guests for the 21 graduates. As part of the ceremony each student was also inducted as International Old Alleynian, the name for former pupils of the International Dulwich Colleges and in honor of Edward Alleyn, founder of Dulwich College London. Old Alleynians include many celebrated figures such as explorer Ernest Shackleton and writers such as P G Wodehouse as well as leading scientists, academics, actors, film directors, entertainers, politicians, judges and sportsmen.

Dulwich Suzhou graduates will be going on to many prestigious universities around the world such as UC Berkeley, Tufts, UCLA, University of Virginia, Toronto, Edinburgh, UCL, King’s College London, Reading, Surrey and the Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University in Suzhou. They will go on to study many diverse disciplines from engineering, science and business to food nutrition, hotel management, economics, marketing and architecture.

The ceremony was held in the new theatre at Dulwich College Suzhou where the graduates have been able to complete their education at a school with facilities that are second to none. Having the best possible learning environment is a top priority at the College, which has just announced a major programme during the summer to improve indoor air quality with filtered fresh air systems installed throughout the school. “No other international school in Suzhou provides a better learning environment for their students. We have been able to give our graduates the best possible start. We are very proud of what they have achieved already and know that they will go on to attain even more success in the future,” says John Todd, Headmaster.

The morning ended with the Alleynian Farewell Walk where the 21 students formed a procession around the College, their path lined by all of the students from the rest of the school cheering them on. The ceremony finished with the traditional throwing of hats into the air!
