On Friday night it was time for the fortnight’s excitement, hard work, learning and adventures to come to an end, as students graduated from Oxford Royale Academy and readied themselves for departure home and into the next stage of their lives.
Programme Director Christine kicked off the inspiring graduation ceremony in the marquee, with a speech that emphasised how far students had come from the beginning of two weeks, and how they had achieved this together. Each student was presented with a graduation scroll, and for those students who had shown exceptional effort or achieved particular academic heights, there were special awards.
Thence it was time to start the party, where a carnival awaited to entertain and delight students. A great time was had by all, as they danced, chatted and competed well into the evening; the mood was celebratory, as even students sad to leave ORA and their new friends behind them focused on future reunions and adventures to come. Congratulations, one and all!
