That's All Folks!


Today was the official end of the French, German, and Chinese programs here at GMC. To cap off four amazing weeks here, all academies took part in one final event: the Graduation Ceremony. 

As all academy students filtered into the auditorium, the emotion and sentiment in the air was palpable. While many students seemed excited to finally complete their Language Pledge, bittersweet notes were clear as well. After four long weeks, the moment was finally here!
