“Partir c’est mourir un peu” or, in English, “To part means to die a little”.
The end of this school year for the graduating class of 2014 was celebrated in the auditorium on Saturday, before a record attendance of visitors. The influx of parents, host families, Board members and friends of the College stretched our capacity to the full, but they all contributed to the uplifting framework and celebratory atmosphere created for the Graduation Ceremony. Many tears were shed, both from the class leaving and from their friends who will stay one more year by the shores of the bay at Haugland. In the sadness of leaving, we know that our graduates will have some very exciting years ahead of them.
Congratulations to all – and many thanks to all those who worked so hard to make the second year dinner on Friday night and the events of Graduation Day such a success.
