On Wednesday, October 18th, 2023, the Sun and Shield School held its 17th Graduation Ceremony, a day of pride and celebration for the entire school community. The event was graced by the presence of the school's esteemed director, Professor Gladys Kiptiony, Headteacher Mr. Peter Moi, dedicated teachers, proud parents, and, of course, the special graduates themselves.
In her opening address, Professor Gladys Kiptiony spoke passionately about the school's journey, emphasizing that, at Sun and Shield School, we believe that every student is a champion. She expressed deep gratitude to the school's visionary founders for championing academic excellence and creating a nurturing environment where learning is not just a task but a fun-filled experience.
The school's management has consistently provided experienced and dedicated teachers, whose love and care have been instrumental in shaping the graduates' lives. Professor Gladys extended her thanks to the teachers, acknowledging their invaluable role in making the day of graduation possible.
Parents and guardians were not left out of the accolades, as they were hailed for their unwavering support. Their sacrifices have ensured that the children receive a top-notch education. Professor Gladys humorously declared that "east or west, Sun and Shield School is the best" and encouraged them to continue entrusting their little ones to the school's care.
The Pre-Primary 2 graduation speech was equally heartwarming, delivered by one of the young graduates. The speaker reminisced about their early days at the school and how, despite the initial cries and uncertainties, they found a home away from home. They praised the teachers for their dedication, not only in academics but also in instilling moral and spiritual values.
The young graduate also expressed gratitude to 'Aunty' Gladys, the director, for providing an excellent learning environment and urged fellow graduates to work smart to achieve their dreams and have a bright future. A heartfelt blessing was extended to the parents for their financial support and unwavering commitment to their children's education.
The 17th Graduation Ceremony at Sun and Shield School was indeed a day to remember, celebrating the achievements and growth of the young graduates as they embark on their journey to success. The event reinforced the school's commitment to fostering not only academic excellence but also values that will shape these young minds into responsible and respectful individuals. Congratulations to the graduates, and best wishes for their future endeavors!
