Labuan, 21 September 2017. Nineteen students will bid farewell to Labuan International School this year. They will be sitting for Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia and IGCSE this coming November. Students were given a written recommendation affirming their character and their academic, as well as non-academic performance at LIS Testimonial Day on last Friday.
Mirza Nur Sabrina bt Mohd Rizlan was selected as valedictorian to represent the graduates to express their gratitude to teachers and parents. It was a heartwarming moment when the graduates presented a short video clip of the moments the class of 2016/2017 shared together growing in LIS. The teachers were very touched when they were acknowledged by the graduates in their presentation. The highlight of the ceremony was during the finale when the graduates sung a farewell song entitled “Friendship”.
