St Julian’s Class of 2005 graduates

news: St Julian’s Class of 2005 graduates

MAY 25 will be remembered by students and parents alike as the student backbone of St Julian’s School in Carcavelos graduated.

Many of the students of Class of 2005 will no longer be woken by weary parents as they try to coax them to leave on time to get to St Julian’s. Instead, self-discipline and determination will be the rule of the day to get them to lectures on time, as many will arrive at their universities for the first time at the end of the year.

Miss Anne Hughes, Secondary School Principal, welcomed everyone in a lighthearted encounter of the graduating students, while Isabel Meadowcroft, accompanied by Douglas Badder on guitar, got the students and guests in the mood with her enchanting singing voice.

Then followed the awards of the Year 13 International Baccalaureate Completion Certificates handed by David Smith, the School’s Headmaster, to all the students, who were impeccably attired for the evening’s events. It was then the turn of Sydney Jennings to play the piano and sing – she deservedly got a huge applause.

The individual awards, far too numerous to mention, followed, and one can be assured that the recipients deserved them. This had been a great year all round for achievements by the students.

In reply to the tutors, the school’s Head Boy, Francisco Mendez de Vigo, and Head Girl, Georgia Munnion, addressed the guests with thanks from the students to all in the school, who had made it possible for them to achieve completion of their IB studies.

A presentation of a bouquet was made to Mrs. Simões da Conceição, Director of Studies, for her hard work with the students. Ana Luísa Ferreira then took to the stage to play guitar and sing her heart out.

Finally, the European Council of International Schools award for International Understanding was presented to Georgia Munnion. The Resident wishes the students well on their journey through life and learning.
