Froebelians Class of 2008 | FJWU exhibition

An exciting moment for Froebelians
Islamabad: It was hard to believe that students of the 'Class of 2008' once ran after one another and played childish pranks inside the premises of the Froebel's International School in Islamabad.

Last Saturday, they weren't the same carefree children, they were young adults about to enter the real world. The ceremony started off with a welcome note by Abbas Zaidi, one of the best speakers this school had seen. Graduating students arrived in robes and hats as they gracefully walked down the stairs and sat on their respective seats.

A minute was given to the proud, beaming parents to greet their children and to capture that glorious moment on their cameras. One of the teachers, Mohammad Abid, in his address, reminded the outgoing class that the world is full of 'deceit' and that they, as Froebelians, had a duty not to fall prey to it.

"Carry sunshine with you to brighten your darkest hours," said Ms Afia, the principal. "With your abilities, what others can do, you can do better," she added. Prominent Supreme Court lawyer of Islamabad Anees Jillani was the chief guest on the occasion and recounted some of his experiences, and bestowed the students with valuable advice, especially that of to count our blessings and to carry the poor with us.

Anees Jillani and Ms Afia handed out the graduation certificates, giving each student a hearty congratulation as the parents clicked their cameras. It was a shining moment for the students, their families and their teachers.

After the ceremony, students assembled for a group photograph with the chief guest, after which they threw their graduation hats into the air collectively to express their joy. It was an emotional, yet exciting moment for everyone. All 101 graduate students would look back to with fondest memories, for this was the day that marked their first footsteps into the direction of their dreams. The News
