June 7th was a big day for our little ones - the Maple Bear annual graduation and moving-up ceremony took place at the Oberoi Hotel in Business Bay. This year, the nursery marked commencement with a Seussical to the theme of Oh the Places You’ll Go!
We also took this memorable milestone as an opportunity to highlight the immense artistic talent in this year’s student cohort. Families had the pleasure of browsing an art collection displaying some of the great masterpieces produced by our preschoolers over the course of the academic year. While many were individual pieces, some of the canvases were collaborative projects , bringing unique perspectives together into one masterpiece. Right next to the gallery was a photo corner, which featured graffiti cushions that are the handiwork of the graduating Kindergarten 2 class. The event ticket also featured the whimsical take of one of the grads on the illustrations in Oh the Places You’ll Go!. The winning entry was selected from submissions to an art competition which was held in school a few weeks leading up to the ceremony.
Along with certificates being awarded to acknowledge a successful academic year, our students took pride in musical and athletic performances, and were recognized for their talent in the full range of extra-curricular and language activities that they participated in over the year - soccer, Arabic, French, tennis, karate, piano, you name it!
We’re not gonna lie, seeing the little ones in caps and gowns made us all just a little teary eyed. All the teachers wish the alumni the greatest success in their future learning journeys, and look forward to welcoming back the younger ones into the next grade in September.
