2016 graduation book coverThe Convent High School bids good-bye to 81 Fifth formers in their 2016 graduation ceremony under the theme-  “Education is an adventure; go out and explore”.  This year the ceremony was held at the Dominica State College Auditorium and ComSee TV was able to stream the ceremony live, internationally. It was an eventful evening, with the head girl, Marie-Ange Emanuel lighting the way forward in her welcome address: “The fireworks begin today.  Each diploma is a lighted match.  Each one of you is a fuse.”  

The Feature address speaker, former CHS student, deputy head girl and Caecilian, Miss Yakima Cuffy, encouraged the graduates to equip themselves for their life’s adventure with the correct tools while colourfully drawing reference to Tolkien's Bilbo Baggins and Beyonce’s “Lemonade”. His Lordship, Bishop Gabriel Malzaire advised the graduates to beware of individualism, hedonism and minimalism in the modern world while Miss Marcella Powell, Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Education, who represented the Honourable Minister for Education, wished the graduates all success as they explore new vistas. 

To entertain the parents, guardians, and well-wishes, the graduates from the Sign Language Club, the Speech Chorale and the Band performed admirably and the graduates did a sentimental "I Hope You Dance" by LeAnn Womack/Gladys Knight.

The highlight of the evening was valedictorian, Inoela Vital who earnestly thanked all who were involved in bringing the graduates to this juncture in their lives as they finally “cut the umbilical cord” connecting them to the CHS.  She wished them “peace of mind, a clean conscience and spiritual and self-fulfillment.”

The parents and the graduates made a special presentation of appreciation to all the teachers present by giving them each a corsage of gratitude.

To all those who made this day so special, Convent High school thanks you.

To the Graduates of 2016, we hope you never lose your sense of wonder as you continue your adventure. We hope you all Dance.
