The graduation ceremony of Aga Khan School, Dhaka, for the academic year 2019-20 was held on Saturday virtually due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

A total of 67 graduating students celebrated their success at the virtual programme.

Addressing the ceremony, Principal Dr Dale Taylor said that while the Covid-19 pandemic had affected society in many detrimental ways, the resilience of the graduates in the face of adversity would serve them well in the future.       

Speaking as the guest speaker, Runa Khan, Executive Director and founder of Friendship, a non-profit organisation that works with vulnerable and remote communities in Bangladesh, urged the students to show humility and be open to learning from every aspect of life.

Amyn Saleh, Chairman of the Aga Khan Education Service, Bangladesh, encouraged them to make use of the knowledge, attitudes and values they possessed to thrive in a complex, dynamic and diverse world.
