Highlights of this year's graduation ceremony.
The senior students of the Class of 2012* were honoured and farewelled last Saturday at the Academy’s annual Graduation ceremony. The students have completed their IB Diploma examinations and now move on to tertiary studies. The 36 students have been accepted into 22 different institutions including Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States, Egypt, Qatar and South Africa. Their courses range from law and commerce to international relations, aeronautical engineering, and Islamic Studies. As well as acknowledging each individual graduand, the Awards of Excellence to the top male and female student were also presented. These awards are based on academic excellence, contribution to co-curricular activities and for exemplifying the Aga Khan Learner Profile. This year the awards went to Mirabelle Arodi and Aleem Mawji.
This year’s Graduation was held in the new grand Commons building, with accompanying performances from the Academy orchestra and the school’s national champion choral group. The Chief Guest was Mr Wilfred D Kiboro, Chairman of the Nation Media Group. Mr Kiboro spoke on his own personal experiences as a father of four who had to let his children go and attend university well away from home. He encouraged the parents present to let their children go, to trust them and to maintain a close, open and mutually respectful relationship with them.
He also spoke to the graduates. He said that the choices they each make as they begin the next chapter in their lives will have a huge impact on their whole future. Mr Kiboro told them to aim high, dream big, have a game plan, don't be afraid, and to work hard. There is nothing in life that comes easy.
Other speakers at the Graduation were Mr Salim Bhatia, Director of the Academies Unit, who introduced Mr Kiboro and who also spoke about the growth of the Aga Khan Academies with the opening of the second campus in Hyderabad last August. He also addressed the graduating students directly encouraging them to keep in contact with the Academy and their classmates via the Academy’s Facebook page, to continue to do their best and to fulfill His Highness’ vision of becoming leaders of communities both in Kenya and more broadly.
