End of the school year 2018/19 celebration

The ceremony of the end of the second completed school year took place on Friday 28th June at Akademeia High School. We said goodbye to our first cohort of pupils who took their full A Levels.

To highlight this Mark Moore gave a speech quoting Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”, drawing attention to the paradox of parting, which is at the same time sweet and sour: “Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, That I shall say good night till it be morrow.”

The audience gathered at the school auditorium could admire the students’ work and academic achievements. The ceremony, hosted by Julia Kałużna and Krystian Schneyder, began with two short films, including an interpretation of Charlie Chaplin’s speech from “The Great Dictator”, shot and produced by Akademeia High School students. Then we watched dramas played by Akademeia High School Drama Group and listened to selected pieces performed by Akademeia High School Music Band.

The awards were handed to the best students, the most active in the charity projects or those who made the greatest progress. Karolina Watras, the Deputy Head, handed special diplomas to Year 13 students, stating:

“As the first graduating year of Akademeia High School, you will always hold a very special place in the history of the school. Your ambition, resilience, and commit­ment have been an inspiration to your younger colleagues and a source of joy to your teachers. Together, we have developed the ethos of Akademeia High School. A true education is an encounter of minds and a formative experience. Your teachers have cared for you deeply, not only on academic but also personal levels.

I congratulate you all on your perseverance and hard work. Throughout your time with Akademeia, you have flourished and developed into outstanding young peo­ple. I am confident that you will use your intellect and talents to further improve yourselves and to make a positive impact on the world. What I wish you the most is never giving up on the pursuit of knowledge and enjoying the process while you are at it!”

 

Finally, Akademeia High School teachers performed a surprise show for the students and sang two songs.
