Ã‚Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“The greater the victory, the greater the celebration.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Ã¢â‚¬â€¢John C. Maxwell
Indeed, the greater the victory, the greater the celebration. Just like the quote, IPEKA INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN SCHOOL (IICS) Junior High Year 9 students gratefully celebrated their graduation and the time to continue their studies to the Senior High.
A thanksgiving ceremony was held on May 25, 2012 at the IICS Grand Chapel. A prayer by DR. Janet Nason (IPEKA CEO Advisor) opened the ceremony. Afterward, it was enlivened with a praise and worship, art performances by the students, and some inspirational messages from Mr. Djoharli Samsudin (Administration Principal Junior-Senior High School), as well as from the studentÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s representations, i.e. Bella and Timothy, and a word from JoanneÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s (class 9.1) parent.
Finally, the ceremony was ended with closing speech by Mr. Budisantoso Kurniadi (Junior High School Vice Principal) and closing prayer by Mr. Joseph McGrath (Academic Principal).
Hopefully, the students would remember all of the lessons as well as the wonderful memories crafted during their study with the teachers and friends, and would keep pursuing their dreams and higher education.
