85 students graduate from San Pedro Roman Catholic School


As graduation season continues on Ambergris Caye, on Friday, June 19th, the San Pedro Roman Catholic School (SPRCS) graduated 85 students. The commencement exercise was held under the theme, ‘It is in your hand to make of our world a better one for all,’ and was divided into brief sessions with different groups of students showing up at the school’s compound to receive their Standard Six Certificates. This extended graduation event, triggered by the current COVID-19 pandemic, went on until late in the afternoon.

Each group of students attended the short function and proudly received their certificates and awards. Afterward, they mingled with their family and friends and took the time to take some pictures of the memorable moment.
