“I commend our teachers and students who continued with learning online or via mixed modes over the past many months. I also thank parents for not pausing their children’s studies but instead supporting our school’s approaches. Their graduation stories evidence their purpose in and our school’s commitment to education,” said Dr Cheng in her congratulatory speech.

The momentous event was attended by over 60 graduates along with their proud family members by following strict Standard Operating Procedures. Musical performances were also presented by the students during the graduation sessions to celebrate.

“I commend you on your adaptability and resilience. This pandemic has changed how we are able to interact with each other, the way we work and how we are able to go to school. But you made it through. Change will not stop and you will have many more changes and challenges ahead of you.  You will be ready,” said Craig’s message of encouragement for the graduates upon stepping into the next stages of their lives.
