Banaadir Academy Graduation

Banaadir Academy Graduation celebrations began with a celebratory tour through the two campuses. The graduates, in full cap and gown, with Pomp & Circumstance playing as they walked the halls  with walked the halls and were high-fived by their classmates throughout both buildings, “It’s the graduation song!” an excited under-classman yelled.

At Banaadir Elementary, the 4th Graders who will be moving to Banaadir Academy in the fall, got to ask the graduates questions about what it was like to be a Senior and other questions like what they were excited for in their future, and what did they want to do with their careers.  The Seniors seemed a little bit like rockstars and gave great advice to the 4th Graders like, “Work hard now, stay with it and 12th grade will be easier!”  Or, “As long as you’re nice to your teachers, pay attention in class and do your work, you’ll be good!”

The graduates celebrated their big day with family and friends, Dr. Hassan shared with them, “Make a positive impact on the future.”

One of the student speakers shared, “The more you fail, the more prepared you will be for life’s challenges.”  Another speaker thanked her wonderful teachers for helping her overcome barriers during school.
