With heavy hearts the sun dawned on the last complete day of Oxford Scholastica. There were final opportunities to head into Oxford to purchase gifts for those back home – particularly from those being relied on for airport pickups! Our final day always has a tinge of sadness to it as packing begins and everyone tries to spend as much time as possible with friends before the school ends. Spirits rose as we moved towards the climactic Graduation Ceremony, always held on the final Friday of the summer school. The students moved to the Saïd Business School where they joined attending parents for the Ceremony. Proud students were presented with their graduation certificates and we heard from each of the classes about their time at Oxford Scholastica. Jad, Bruno and Fawzi put together a fantastic video of their time in Oxford, which rivaled Tim’s video diary in winning laughs and tears. After the ceremony concluded, we enjoyed a barbeque dinner on the grounds of the business school, providing fuel for the ceilidh to follow. After the ceilidh, students returned to the accommodation for the final night of Oxford Scholastica for 2015.
