Congratulations to the classes of 2018! There were many cheers, much applause and a few tears as our graduating Year 10 and 12 students, families, teachers and GISS staff came together for a special graduation ceremony last night. 

Year 10 class teachers, Belinda and Tanja, spoke about their students’ hard work and dedication, their persistence and teamwork, and the exciting future and responsibilities that lay ahead for them. 

The highlight of the evening was when Year 12 presented the traditional IB surfboard, created by the students, to IB coordinator, Annie Thomson, and the IB core team. Annie Thomson and our Principal, Lorenz Metzger, then recalled the students' IB journey; the ups and downs, trials and triumphs of the class of 2018, which is the first Year 12 class to graduate in November. 

Guest of honour, Deputy German Consul General, Klaus Steitz, wished all our 43 graduates the very best for their future ahead. The night ended with everyone on the dance floor and in the ever so popular photo booth. 

Special thanks to Kate, Barbara, Joe, Syelle and Laurence for organising this wonderful event.
