The Island Academy graduates 5
Monday, June 3rd, 2013
Five young girls walked the aisle on Friday, May 31st to the tune of Pomp and Circumstance at The Island Academy school grounds. They have completed their primary school education, and look forward to their new experience in high school. Ilynn Camal, Danni Hannah, Stephanie Keating, Kaylee Kumul and Leeanne Vega were the honorees at the 2013 graduation ceremonies.
As per usual, precluding the graduation speeches was an awards ceremony for all the students from beginners to standard five.Each teacher awarded their top students in the various categories, including academics and citizenship and most improved. Proud parents looked on as their children were awarded certificates and encouraged to keep up the good work.
Each graduate was then called on to give a brief speech to those in attendance. They also received awards for their hard work throughout the year. Academically, Stephanie Keating and Leeanne Vega tied for the highest marks in their class. Each year, one student is singled out to receive the Sir Barry Bowen Cup (formerly the Principal’s Cup). The Cup is the highest honor bestowed on a graduate, and recognizes the talents, personality and effort demonstrated by the student. This year’s honoree is Kaylee Kumul, who has shown both academic and athletic prowess. Congratulations to all the graduates; may your future be bright!
