The seventeenth BIS annual Prize Giving and Graduation Ceremony was held in Vila “Jelena” on Friday, June 13.
The Graduates dressed in blue gowns and caps looked very mature. Their families, teachers and friends were excited and cheering for them because they had made it. Our graduates were also a bit scared since they knew that once they walked across the stage everything would be different. They had finally reached the one night that would end school life and take their next educational step at university.
It was also the night when primary and secondary students were awarded for their outstanding academic achievements. Jelena, from Year 6, received the Council of British International Schools (COBIS) Award, whilst Eleni and Milica, from Year 9, jointly received the “Jonathan Rider” Academic Achievement Award.
Diplomas and awards were presented by the guest of honour, Mr Mirza Salman Babar Beg, Charge d’affaire at the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and Ms Aleksandra Keserovic, BIS Principal.
When the night was over one of the graduates said, ”If I could turn back the hands of time, I would live my graduation once again.” We all felt the same.
It was a dream come true after many years of hard work, worries and joys.
Congratulations Class of 2014!
