The evening was also attended by the Dutch Ambassador to Kuwait, the Ambassador of South Africa, prominent Kuwait artist Thuraya Baqsami and parents among other special guests. The evening commenced with the entry of the class of 2018 to a huge round of applause from the parents and guests.

School Marketing and PR Manager Adeeb Shuhaiber welcomed the guests to this special event. This was followed by a speech by Mrs. Shuhaiber, Head of Sixth Form Judith Ashton and Head Principal Russell Dunlop. Upper School Principal Steve Dickens also addressed the Graduates.

Entertainment for the evening came from the now infamous Robert Hao as he performed “You will never walk alone” from Carousel, accompanied by Nicolette Van Zitters.
