Graduation Speeches 2013

May 2013, Banaadir Academy celebrated its first graduation ceremony in our new building. The event was attended by over a hundred family and friends and was a huge success. Some of the main highlights were the great speeches written by our students. We are so proud of you all!

They can be seen below.

You know why we wanted to share our speeches with you? It’s because we always wanted to share something with you guys. I’ve been in this school about three years. Yes, I have been bullied but I never let that stop me. Because when you bully, it just proves you are a person that doesn’t care about anybody.
“A man will never take a relationship seriously until he takes himself seriously.” That’s what my old tutor told me. But this school changed me. I used to be anti-social. But it changed when I began to have friends.

Hi, I’m Lamiya Said. I’m a fifth grader at Bannadir Academy. Banaadir is one of my favorite schools and fifth grade was my favorite grade!

Mr. Kommavang is my favorite fifth grade teacher because when I don’t know how to do a math problem, he always helps! He also helps the rest of my classmates when they are having a hard time.

Hi my name is Sumaya Karie and I want to welcome you to the 6th annual graduation at Banaadir Academy. I want to share with you my exciting year in 5th grade. I had two very great teachers: Mr.Kommovang and Mr. Hutchins. Without them, I wouldn’t be here standing in front of you today.

As a young kid, I always struggled with math and had a strong hatred towards it. But with Mr. Kommovang, he made math look like a piece of cake. However, I love reading. Mr. Hutchins would give us silent reading time, and I must say, it was my favorite time of the day; I always looked forward to it. I love reading to the point where the teacher would have take my book away like three times a week.
