A very happy day today for some of the students of Hope School who held their graduation ceremony in Beit Jala. I was so proud to see the young people I have known for the past few years receiving their certificates. My hope is now that they will use the knowledge and experience they have gained to move forward to the next step and then go on to make a great and positive difference in the world. I was also so proud today of Mohammed Ja’affreh who, at the same ceremony, was awarded ‘best student’ certificate for Hope School.
Great news for another youngster today, the first to be sponsored by ACIC, has been accepted into her school of choice having passed her interviews. I look forward to seeing her at her graduation in a few years.
