The graduation is a farewell address delivered to DIS' graduating class. 

We are proud of our 38 graduates! On June 5 they officially received their DIS High School Diploma at the Maritim International Congress Center. It was a very festive event with David Prochaska and Lee Barlow, Secondary School teachers, as the keynote speakers. 

We were happy to organize the best graduation ceremony possible for our students under the current public health regulations. Our students and families deserved nothing less for the hard work, achievements and commitment made over the years. The Class of 2021 is a creative and lively group and will be missed. We wish them success and hope that they tackle future challenges with tenacity, idealism, and ambitions.


The Class of 2021 were given their diplomas by Director Steven Calland-Scoble and Secondary School Principal Jennifer Tickle. Teachers also presented a variety of special awards. David Prochaska and Lee Barlow, both Secondary School teachers, gave speeches which were followed by student speeches. We also enjoyed the amazing performance of Stringed Compass who played real world music. 

Valedictorian (highest ranking): Alexander Mackenzie

Salutatorian (second best): Lucile de Laporte

Awards of Excellence: Anna B., Thomas Beitelschmidt, Yamila Dannenberg, Lucile de Laporte and Katrina Mackenzie

We are now looking forward to celebrating the Class of 2022 on June 4, 2022.
