On the 27th of June, we gathered to celebrate the remarkable achievements of our graduating class at Med High School. It was an evening filled with honour, inspiration, and bittersweet farewells as our students prepared to embark on their university journey.
Guided by our skilled Master of Ceremonies, Georgia Lyssandrou and Iliana Papandreou, the graduation began with anticipation and excitement. Amidst thunderous applause, the graduates, dressed in caps and gowns, entered the room, a testament to their years of dedication and hard work.
Principal Elena Mouzourou took the stage, delivering a heartfelt message to the graduating class, highlighting their limitless potential.
We were privileged to have Mr. Andreas Vyras, the esteemed Mayor of Larnaca, Cyprus, as our guest speaker. His inspiring address emphasized resilience, community engagement, and a commitment to lifelong learning, serving as a guiding light for our graduates.
The top-scoring graduates, Derawi Ahmed Hamed and Fanou Stephanie, then delivered heartfelt speeches, expressing gratitude and reflection in English and Greek respectively. Their words showcased their growth, resilience, and the unwavering support from their teachers, parents, and the Med High community.
We took great pleasure in honouring the students who have been with Med High since grade 1, as well as the recipients of the prestigious Duke of Edinburgh International Award schemes.
Additionally, we recognized the exceptional participants of MediMUN, celebrating their passion for international affairs, diplomacy, and critical thinking.
Twenty-three students who achieved over 90% in their apolytirion—the final high school certificate—received well-deserved honours awards, acknowledging their outstanding academic accomplishments.
A pinnacle moment of the ceremony was the presentation of the Highest Academic Achievement Award. One student from each of the 15 subjects received this prestigious accolade, recognizing their unparalleled dedication, intellectual prowess, and exceptional performance.
With pride and excitement, each student walked across the stage to receive their graduation certificates, greeted by applause and cheers, celebrating their perseverance, growth, and successful completion of their high school journey.
To our graduating class, we extend our warmest congratulations. Your dedication, resilience, and determination have been truly remarkable, and we are immensely proud of your achievements. Embrace the opportunities that lie ahead with enthusiasm, courage, and a passion for lifelong learning.
We express our deepest gratitude to the exceptional educators, staff, and parents who have played a vital role in shaping the academic, personal, and emotional growth of our graduates. Your unwavering support and guidance have been invaluable, and we thank you for your commitment to their success.
As we bid farewell to this chapter, we eagerly anticipate the bright futures that await each and every one of our graduates. May your journeys be filled with adventure, discovery, and fulfilment. The bonds forged at Med High will always be a source of strength, support, and inspiration.
Goodbye for now, dear students. May the road ahead be filled with success, joy, and countless achievements. We look forward to hearing of your accomplishments and welcoming future Med High generations with open arms. We also look forward to seeing everyone back at school in September!
