The IICS Class of 2013 Senior High had its graduation on 8 November 2013. The event was inspired by 2 Corinthians 5:17, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!Ã¢â‚¬Â This verse served as a reminder for the graduates that in Christ, their futures are new and bright. The theme Ã¢â‚¬Å“The night of the starsÃ¢â‚¬Â followed this idea with our graduates as bright stars.
Flag bearer, Kevin Utama, led the graduates into the chapel. Ibu Setyawati led the opening prayer. Mr Kristhianto Kainama delivered a warm welcome and Mr Joseph McGrath delivered an inspirational message about courageous faith. Dr Janet Nason gave a speech on behalf of the IPEKA Foundation; Ms Natalie delivered the teacherÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s reflection. A special speaker, Mr Toni Sianipar delivered the parentÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s reply.
A range of students replied to the messages. Cassey Liestyo delivered the student reply, Yudhistira Bunjamin spoke to his cohort and Joshua Sungkarto shared a touching message to parents. We were also entertained by a short clip by the graduates before the presentation of awards and tassle ceremony.
Hats off to the graduates, staff and teachers for creating such a memorable evening!
