“I am very grateful to my parents, my teachers and our school principal who drove us to this moment. No one can express our feelings in this eminent day, we waited 13 years until we reached this moment, I am very proud that we did it” said Daniel Michael who delivered the speech of the graduates. Five of the kindergarten’s graduates delivered a thank you speech: “ it is indeed a great pleasure to stand before you, to share all the precious moments that we have had last year in our Kindergarten” “ Do you know?? we have learned letters, and how to read and write. We have learned Arabic, English, math, songs, and how to be self-confidents” “I would like to thank our teachers, parents who have supported us”. These dear words have come out of our children’s tongues and hearts with great love and passion.
Many thanks to all our friends who make the dream of our children come true
