The British School of Kuwait celebrated thirty seven years
at the forefront of British education, when parents and dignitaries gathered in
the magnificent splendour of the Futouh Ballroom at the Regency Hotel to laud
the many wonderful achievements which the past academic year has brought.
BSK was privileged to have HE Dr Bader Al
Essa, Minister of Education and Higher Education, as patron for this most
glittering occasion in the school calendar. Dr Al Essa was ably represented by Dr Haitham
Al Athari, Undersecretary for Education, who officiated at the Year 11
Graduation, and presented the Council of
International School’s Award (CIS) to Deputy Head Girl Farah Abdelhameed and
the much coveted Director’s Award to Head Girl Pema Tshogyal.
Guests also included HE the British
Ambassador, Mr Matthew Lodge, who officiated at the Sixth Form Graduation and who presented the Leadership Award to Head Boy Ethan Harradine. The evening was
also graced with the attendance of Mr Abdullah Al Basri, General Manager of
Administration at the Ministry of Private Education.
BSK Chairman, Mr Sadiq
Al-Mutawa, welcomed the graduates of the class of 2015 and urged them to
continue their great efforts as they set out to take up places in universities
and colleges throughout the world. Ambassadors
of Germany, United Kingdom and Egypt presented language awards.
Guest speaker Dr Al Athari spoke very warmly
about the quality of BSK’s educational provision. Ambassador Lodge developed
this theme by highlighting some of the school’s key strengths, as evidenced by
the findings of the inspection report produced at the time BSK was recognised
by the UK Department for Education as a British School Overseas. In reply, Mr Paul Shropshire delivered his Principal’s
Address, which included an outline of many of the most noteworthy achievements
from Reception to Year 13 over the past year.
Achievement in creative arts was also celebrated, with guests being treated
to a series of musical treats from the BSK String Orchestra (Summer from
Vivaldi’s Four Seasons), La Camerata (First movement from Vivaldi’s Double
Violin Concerto) and the Chamber Ensemble (Gabrieli’s Canzon Septimi Toni a 8).
Head Girl Pema Tshogyal and Head Boy Ethan
Harradine brought the evening to a close with their reply address, and the
Festival of Achievement and Graduation Ceremony 2015 came to a rousing finale
with a salute to the parents and staff of The British School of Kuwait.
