Head of Secondary, Mr Tansley offered a review of the school year and heartfelt congratulations to the both the graduates and the award recipients for both the effort and their achievement. HE the Dutch Ambassador to Romania, Ms Stella Ronner-Grubacic spoke about the opportunities offered at Dutch universities. Deputy Head Mr Tiplea and DOEIA Coordinator Ms Johanna Croci joined SLT on stage to help present the awards, and finally Ms Baker and Ms Croci joined forces to introduce the graduates as they individually came up on stage to receive their graduation diplomas.
The night ended with the graduates tossing their caps in to the air to shouts of jubilation and everyone raising a glass to officially toast the graduates of 2018, who leave us to join an ever expanding group of IBSB Alumni around the world.
