Congratulations to the class of 2020! There were many cheers, much applause and a few tears as our graduating Year 12 students, families, teachers and GISS staff came together for a special graduation ceremony at Zest last Friday. 

Year 12 class teachers, Volker and Lusha, 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 2020.

Guest of honour, Deputy German Consul General, Klaus Steitz, wished all our 27 graduates the very best for their future ahead. The night ended with everyone having fun on the dance floor. 

Special thanks to Kate for organising this wonderful event.
