Honours Day 2016

(Chinese article is available here.)

Honours Day is the most important event in Stamford School calendar. It is the day we honour academic excellence, achievements within & outside of school and exemplary services to the school as well as celebrating the learning journey of our graduates of Kindergarten 2, Primary 6, Secondary 4 and Junior-College 2 as they crossed a milestone into the next chapter of their lives. The ceremony took place on the 9th of June 2016 and was attended by well-wishers including family members, academic faculty members and friends.

In his opening speech, Dr Peter Darmawan announced that Mr Moses Sia will assume the position of Stamford School’s Academic Advisor where he will be consulted on academic matters and be invited from time-to-time to review our school’s academic programmes. This ensures the quality of education provided by Stamford School and reaffirms our commitment for providing the best education for our students. Dr Peter also thanked various groups of people: Parents, Teachers, Administrative Staff, Resource Team, IT-Team, Janitors and Security – all of whom were instrumental in our students’ growth and success in the school. Dr Peter also took the opportunity to express his sincere thanks for Mr Sia’s hard work and dedication to the students, staff and families of the school.

For the graduating students, Dr Peter hoped that the graduates will be able to live each day with a purpose, seize any opportunity that may come their way and never be afraid of failure because life will put many obstacles in their path that are far worse than a bad exam result. As a closing remark, Dr Peter reminded students that the door of Stamford School will always be open for them anytime that they need help in the future. He reassured students that Stamford School will always support their alumni to the best of their ability and that “Once a Stamfordian is always a Stamfordian” and they will always be part of Stamford School family. (Read Dr Peter’s full speech here.)

In the Principal’s  address to the school, Mr Moses Sia highlighted two of the developments this year – the Stamford Scholarship and Book Prize and Stamford Sports. Stamford Scholarship and Book Prize is unique in a way because the applicants would have to propose a project that benefits the community that they have to carry out when they win the award (find out more about Stamford Scholarship here.) For the Scholars this year, they had to exercise their leadership and management in implementing their proposed project. Most of them faced obstacles and unexpected changes, but with the support of their mentors, they ultimately succeeded. This reflects the balanced and holistic approach that the school take to learning and growing in Stamford and it is in line with Stamford’s vision that our students grow to be leaders who contribute to their community.

Speaking on Stamford Sports, Mr Sia explained that it has evolved from the usual annual Sports Day which focused solely on track and field events into a series of sports competitions throughout the school year which was intentionally aligned to the day-to-day Physical Education (PE) programme. This was the brainchild of Stamford School’s PE teachers: Mr Rully and Ms Yessy. Mr Sia noted the level of enthusiasm at which students practiced hard to get selected. With events spread out in the year, the sports house also became a rallying point for other things as well thus building a greater sense of camaraderie among students and teachers alike. (Read Mr Sia’s full speech here.)

The event that followed was the prize giving ceremony for Top Students in each class as well as the awarding of School Colours. A special award was also given out that evening to Brandon Jones Gunaman who was awarded Top in Indonesia across 4 AS levels by Cambridge International Examinations. Mr Richard Egerton took the honour to give Brandon a glowing tribute during the prize giving ceremony. Brandon is certainly an inspiration to us all. (Read Mr. Egerton’s full speech here.)

We also honoured the staff who have been with Stamford School for 5 years or more. They are:  Mr Affan Tri Setyawan, Ms Anggina Linggar Lestari, Ms Carolyn Parkinson Sulaeman, Mr Farizal Sukandar, Ms Manda Puspa Lestari, Ms Marivir Alojipan Modesto Mercado, Ms Purnama Chrisnawati, Mr Rully Nuryadin and Ms Santhy Dewi Anggraini.

The graduation ceremony started off with the Form Teachers leading the procession into the hall. The expression of pride was evident on the Parents & Teachers’ faces and it was certainly a heartfelt moment for everyone who witnessed it. The students were seen grinning from ear to ear, feeling accomplished from the well-travelled learning journey.

What was heartwarming was the graduates’ speeches that night. Representing the Kindergarten 2 was Claudia Lumanto. In her speech, she thanked the teachers for their guidance and love and she looked forward to learning and growing together with her classmates in Primary 1. (Read Claudia’s full speech here.)

Primary 6 was represented by Jocelyn Ardelia Kusnandar and Bryant Tan Wei Bin. In their speeches, they thanked their teachers from Primary 1 and Primary 6, especially their Form Teachers for their patience, support and teaching them what they needed to learn. Bryant mentioned that Stamford has laid the foundation for them to be able to confidently embark on their next phase of studies. (Read Jocelyn’s & Bryant’s full speech here.)

Tanya Gandhi represented the graduates of Secondary 4. In her speech, she recalled fondly their memories from Primary School right up to Secondary 4 and rallied her classmates to make sure they become the great individuals as Stamford has taught them to be. Tanya’s speech did brought some tears to some of the teachers who had watched them grow from ‘tiny munchkins’ into the confident fine young men and ladies that they are today. (Read Tanya’s full speech here.)

The graduating Junior College 2 class was represented by Bryant Kalim Gunaman and Simran Gandhi. Simran shared that throughout the years, their teachers and their parents’ unconditional love have undoubtedly been a supporting structure in complementing our growth as we learn to be a part of society. Bryant cautioned and encouraged his peers that there are challenges ahead of them and they must meet those challenges straight on head held high and heart wide open. (Read Bryant’s and Simran’s full speech here.)

The night end concluded with the graduates singing the graduation song and mesmerising performance by Ezra. Following that, the graduates scattered to give their Thank You gifts for their parents and loved ones. Our JC student Bryant also compiled a video showing their teachers farewell messages as they embarked on their next phase of life into institutes of higher learning.

We at Stamford School hope that all graduates find their passion in life, spread their wings to work towards realising their dreams and leave their marks in the world.
