Proud Milestones: Honoring Our Class of 2024 at the Independence Palace Graduation Ceremony - Video and pictures available now!

Our Grade 12 graduation ceremony held at the iconic and historical Independence Palace on May 25th, 2024, was an extraordinary event, brimming with uncontainable joy and profound pride. The ambiance was charged with palpable excitement and an overwhelming sense of honor. With admiration, parents and family members gazed upon their accomplished graduates, resplendent in their elegant gowns and caps, as they gracefully accepted their hard-earned diplomas, symbolizing the culmination of their remarkable educational voyage at ISHCMC.

We take immense pride in presenting our esteemed Class of 2024, consisting of 86 graduating seniors. With each student hailing from unique and diverse backgrounds, their journey at our institution has been as varied as their individual experiences. While some have been part of our educational community for years, others joined us more recently. However, they all share a common aspiration - to become accomplished and prosperous adults. Many of our graduates have set their sights on pursuing higher education at prestigious universities abroad, while others have chosen to embark on different personalized paths, following their passions and aspirations.

The achievements of the graduates were celebrated in touching speeches by Kim Green, our Head of School, and Cullen Lockwood, Grade 12 Level Leader.

Kim Green quoted Mark Twain: “Throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover,” and continued, "Embrace the widening horizon before you, for it is brimming with opportunities for growth, learning, and self-discovery. Embrace the challenges, savour the victories, and let your light shine brightly as you embark on this new chapter of your life."

Mr. Cullen Lockwood encouraged the graduates, saying, "As you move into the next stage of your life, I urge you to embrace your own uniqueness and continue taking risks by being vulnerable. Vulnerability is bravery in its purest form. It takes immense courage to be open and vulnerable, sharing our true selves with the world."

We acknowledge that no student can reach their full potential without the love, support, and guidance of their parents. At ISHCMC, we nurture our students’ values and hearts. Parents have filled their children with expectations and dreams, supported them unconditionally, and been influential motivators for the students to reach their milestones today.

We offer our heartfelt congratulations to these exceptional graduates and are proud to have been a part of their growth, development, and shaping their bright futures.
