On May 18, 2018, the school bell rang for the last time for grade 12 students at the European School. The grade 12 students had their last symbolic class with their homeroom teachers. After classes, they celebrated the last day of school. They said goodbye to the school and scribbled messages on each others’ t-shirts. Meanwhile, younger students organized a goodbye concert for our seniors. As the grade 12 students head out into the world, they wish to leave their legacy behind and the tradition of tree planting is their way of saying farewell. Together they planted the tree in the school yard and, before leaving, they wrote autographs on the Alumni Wall. Sophio Bazadze, the Academic Director of the European School, wished them success in their future endeavors.
