Graduation is only one measure of success in life; the future holds more

We like to mark time off with events and ac­complishments, defining each phase of our lives and moving on from them into the future. Grad­uation is one of those milestones. But graduation, like the other events that shape our lives, is more than a milestone. It is a concept defining hard work, achievement and success. It is a celebration of completing an important task; a recognition that there is a beginning and end to all things and that what happens in between is really what matters.

Our graduates should be mindful of that, ap­plying the same level of enthusiasm into every challenge they face from this time on. Arie Pen­covici,

an author and Israeli educator put it this way: Graduation is a process that goes on until the last day of your life. If you can grasp that, you’ll make a difference. Congratulations to all of our graduates and their families. Well done!
