Dubai, UAE, 15th June 2020:  Dubai International Academy, Emirates Hills, celebrated its first-ever online virtual graduation ceremony on Friday, June 12. The cohort of 140 students is the school’s twelfth graduating class and had impressive acceptance rates.

In her address to the students, Poonam Bhojani, CEO of Innoventures Education, said: “You are entering a world very different than what we could have visualized a short while ago. We wish you all success and good luck. As you step out into the world, dare to dream, dare to stand by your dreams and work hard to achieve these dreams.” 
 
Guest of honour, Dr. Imad Hoballah, the Minister of Industry, Lebanon and a member of the DIA advisory council shared an inspiring message of hope, courage and resilience with the graduates. “It is not always easy to know what is right or let alone do what is right but just as you have conquered these 13 years of awkward moments and self-doubt you will learn to do the right thing. You will fail, you will fall but you will pick yourself up, find a new path, forge ahead, invent and reinvent yourself; make the lives of those around you better because you can,” he said. 
 
The online graduation ceremony was made special for students and families with a visual art online exhibition, a wonderful dance display and student videos that made it an interactive experience. Families and friends in the UAE and abroad joined in the celebration as the event went live at 5 pm UAE time, June 12.  The students’ success was celebrated with outstanding awards such as the CEO award, Valedictorian, International student award and many more.  This was the school’s first cohort who had undertaken the Career Related Programme.
 
Quoting Kahlil Gibran, Jayne Needham – Principal Dubai International Academy Emirates Hills, said:  “Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself. They come through you but not from you, and though they are with you yet they belong not to you…”
 
Addressing the Class of 2020, Hitesh Bhagat — Head of Secondary School said: “Congratulations on all that you've accomplished and best wishes on your journey ahead. The fireworks begin today. Each diploma is a lighted match. Each one of you is a fuse. Go, and make interesting mistakes, make amazing mistakes, make glorious and fantastic mistakes. Break rules. Compel the world to be more interesting for you being here. I believe in all of you!”
