On Saturday, 13 June, Vienna International School celebrated the Graduation Class of 2020.
Despite having many of the rituals associated with completing school cancelled due to the COVID-19, the School was happy to welcome back the graduates in the building for a short celebration and farewell.
In addition to having the students on site for the Graduation celebration, the School honoured the students by putting together a Graduation video comprising the speeches of the School Leadership team, Grade 12 Level Leader and Grade 12 Student Elected Speaker, along with other respected teachers presenting the student awards, coming to honor the outstanding academic and philanthropic performances.
“From all of us at Vienna International School, I would like all of you to know how immensely proud we all are. Recent times, (even with COVID-19 not in the picture), have been challenging on a global level for multiple reasons and it gives me great hope for the future, that young people like you are heading out into the real world and will make a real difference. You are all fantastic ambassadors for VIS, Vienna, Austria and whatever country or countries you consider “home”. Please reach high and go far, but always remember VIS.” stated Marc Starr, Secondary School Principal.
We are happy to report that all members of the Class of 2020 met their requirements for the High School Diploma and they are now official graduates of Vienna International School. We congratulate the Class of 2020 and send them our best wishes for a bright future!
