Virtual Graduation - Class of 2020

01 June 2020

We are excited for you all to join us on Wednesday, 3rd June at 6pm to celebrate the Graduation of our Class of 2020 via their Virtual Ceremony.

This is certainly the strangest of endings to our 2019/20 academic year, no more so than for our graduating students, who not only had their IB Diploma Programme abruptly cut short with the cancellation of examinations, but are now dispersing around the world without having had the opportunity to gather together a final time as a group. 

This is especially sad when we consider that some of this year’s Graduating class have been at BIS Abu Dhabi for 10 years. For this reason, it is vital that we mark the occasion of their Graduation, even if this has to be done remotely. As teachers, students and parents, we would have much preferred to celebrate this important occasion together and say our goodbyes in person; however, I hope that what we have created will prove a fitting tribute to and celebration of our Class of 2020.

On Wednesday, 3rd June, students will be able to come to school briefly to collect a package containing their certificates and awards along with some small gifts and keepsakes from the school. The Graduation video will go live at 6pm through a Facebook Premiere link. We hope that all those who tune in will add to the experience by posting photos and sending in messages throughout the ceremony. 

We hope that as a community you will support this extraordinary group of young people as we congratulate them on their hard work and commitment and celebrate all that they have achieved over the last two years.
