IB Class
of 2022!

Yet, after months of adversity affecting the world as we knew it, here we are today, in this unique reality that has given many of us novel meaning, purpose, and even a different perspective on life for some.

In this global context, your graduation (although evidently less dazzling than initially planned), has taken on equally-striking, new-found significance and value. A cultural rite of passage has become an unprecedented, renewed powerful summon from and for the future. The world needs you and is calling upon you, in one voice – to be brave, resilient, proactive and humane. It is asking you to channel your young spirit, energy, and all you have learned, in order to forge renewed, visionary trails – for your studies, profession, life and humanity.

Yes, life is interspersed with the unexpected, but, at the same time, with great beauty and depth. Although facing the unknown can be a daunting task, I believe you are all very fortunate, as I can think of no better preparation for the journey ahead than the International Baccalaureate Diploma – a programme which has opened your minds, provided you with invaluable tools for any challenge, empowered you to succeed in different circumstances and to create added value in your communities. All you have to do is earnestly search within yourselves and you will assuredly find the belief, strength and skills to lead you forward.
