Graduation 2013

The graduation ceremony for the academic year 2012/2013 was held on Friday 21 June 2013 at 5.20 pm. We had to delay the start of the ceremony for twenty minutes until all parents arrived. The delay was due to political unrest in the Beqaa region on that day. Many of the teachers and trainers were not able to reach school because of closed or unsafe roads.
The graduating students entered Herman Schneller Hall in procession followed by Mr. Elias Haddad who is in charge of the boys boarding homes, Miss Souad Boutros who is in charge of the girls boarding homes, the head of the academic department Mrs. Rita Shakrina, the head of the vocational department Mr. Joseph Bou Simaan, and the Director, Rev. George D. Haddad.
The president of the municipal council in Khirbet Kanafar, Mr. Tony Bou Izzeh, was the guest speaker of the ceremony.
The president of the Parents' Committee, Mrs. Leila Sati was also attending with other members of her committee.
The ceremony began with the Lebanese national anthem. It was followed with words of welcome and a prayer by the director. Mr. Tony Bou Izzeh then delivered a message on the occasion.
The director and the heads of both the academic and vocational departments delivered their addresses to the graduating students. Dina Al-Hayek representing Grade 11, and Elias Ziadeh representing the DS3 graduates delivered messages of gratitude to Schneller School and their teachers.
The certificates were then distributed to the graduating students.
A reception followed to honor the graduating students and congratulate their parents.
