The graduation ceremony for the batch of 2018-2019 commenced with a lot of pomp and enthusiasm from the students and their families.
The function commenced with the lighting of the Diya by the chief guest Ms Ruby Lau. She was felicitated by the students along with the other dignitaries on the Dias.
Ms Ruby shared her words of wisdom on how the Montessori family is growing each day with new members joining.

Her words of guidance paving the way for the future ahead.

The ceremony came to a close with the presentation of the certificates by Ms Lau and appreciation for all who have helped throughout this journey in every way possible.
Along with the beautiful memories created over a period of 9 months, we take away the beautiful words Ms Lau said, the institute of training is the roots, and the trainers the branches, the students the new directresses the branches which spread out to nurture the leaves our young ones to become the responsible being of tomorrow.
As Dr Montessori said, “within the child lies the fate of the future.”
