RGSG Qatar’s First Graduation

Posted: 8th June 2023

We are immensely proud that the first ever cohort of graduating students from RGS Guildford Qatar. Students, parents and distinguished guests enjoyed a magnificent Graduation ceremony at the Ritz Carlton. The graduating students have successfully completed their International AS levels and are now ready to embark on the next chapter of their lives.

We were honoured that Mr Hamad owner of Al Qamra Holding, Ms. Kareema Alyousef from the MOEHE and the Principal Mr Sherlock shared their words of wisdom and advice to support our graduating students as they move onto the next chapter of their lives. Mr. Hamad Al Qamra mentioned that having chosen to partner with the Royal Grammar School Guildford in 2016, he was very proud of this first ever graduating class and praised their determination to succeed. This was echoed by a special message from the Headmaster of the Royal Grammar School in Guildford, UK, Dr John Cox who also spoke of how far the school had come and how delighted  he was to hear of the student’s achievements over the past few years.

The Principal Mr. Paul Sherlock encouraged the graduating students to ‘ go forth into the world taking with them the RGS values, of respect, scholarship, courage, inclusivity, collaboration and integrity’. He also stated that the ‘RGS doors are always open’ reflecting that the RGSGQ is like a family, although the students will travel far and do great things, they will always be welcomed back at any time. Along with the valedictorian and student speaker, the principal thanked the unwavering support of the parents, without whom the students and the school would not have succeeded and achieved as much as they have in these past few years. The special guest of honour Ms Kareema encouraged students to follow their dreams and pursue something they love, that would help to develop their skills so that in turn they could achieve excellence for themselves and the State of Qatar.

We wish the Graduating Class of 2023 every success in the future and are certain they will continue to make the RGSG family proud.
