On Tuesday evening (11 October), hundreds of family members, friends and well-wishers gathered at the John Gray High School (JGHS) Gymnasium for the school’s 2022 graduation ceremony held under the theme, ‘Change Your World!’

In his remarks, Mr. Jon Clark expressed his gratitude that the 231 graduates could celebrate the significant milestone with their loved ones. 

“It’s so good to be here and have the great occasion we hoped for, especially after having to hold our ceremony last year with very few guests and no parents.”

Eighty-seven students graduated with honours diplomas, having passed seven or more subjects, including English and mathematics. Of those, 35 earned the coveted ‘Super Cup’ award for having attained at least ten subject passes.

Principal Clark congratulated the graduates for their achievements and expressed his confidence in their readiness to face the world. “You have become fine young adults, not only with strong exam results but a growth mindset, a positive attitude to learning, a sense of community and big dreams that we look forward to seeing you fulfil.”

He further thanked his staff for their role in the graduates’ accomplishments. He encouraged graduates to “continue to set and maintain your own high expectations of yourself and others in all you do. That will be a legacy we can all be proud of, and we are so proud of you.”

Guest Speaker Mr. Shomari Scott, JGHS alumnus and Chief Business Officer at Health City Cayman Islands, called on graduates to find their purpose, be courageous, and leave an imprint on this earth.

Among those in attendance were several high-ranking government officials, including, His Excellency Governor Martyn Roper, Premier Hon. Wayne Panton, Deputy Governor Hon. Franz Manderson, Minister for Health and Wellness, Hon. Sabrina Turner, Deputy Speaker & Parliamentary Secretary Hon. Katherine Ebanks-Wilks and Parliamentary Secretary Mr. Isaac Rankine.

Ministry of Education officials included Acting Chief Officer Ms. Lyneth Monteith, Acting Deputy Chief Officer Mr. Adrian Jones, HR Director Mrs. Kimari Fletcher-Barrett, Acting Chief Financial Officer Mrs. Denise Hutchinson, Department of Education Services (DES) Director Mr. Mark Ray, Senior School Improvement Officers Mr. Nicholas Obie and Dr. Richard Wildman and Head of ICT Mr. Lance Barnes.

Outgoing student leaders Keanna Kelly and Jelani Hanson delivered the graduates’ address.
