Just a few hours before the final scenes, we recall the life at Ayb to record impressions. The best way to allay excitement is to resort to humor. Ayb graduates gather in the Art Studio to remember the school moments and then head for the library, where they - the future doctors, scientists, artists and writers - stage the lessons they will miss so much some hours later.
It’s Ayb School on June 29, 2019. The 7th generation is celebrating graduation. The Ayb Board of Trustees, school authorities, donors, parents, the student community and dozens of guests are in attendance.
Ayb Choir takes stage to perform the Holy Translators’ “Who decorated” canticle prior to the start of the solemn ceremony.
Ayb School principal Aram Pakhchanian emphasizes the importance of good education to make Armenia competitive at the international arena. “Today we are letting yet another generation into the adult life. Each of these children has unbound value and huge potential to do much for our country.”
Ayb donor Artur Janibekyan wishes a happy life journey to the graduates of Ayb, one of the best Armenian-language schools, as he says. He is confident that the knowledge obtained at Ayb will give birth to many brilliant innovations not only in Armenia but also in the whole world. “We do need your patriotism. It fortuned that you are the key generation for our future. Preserve and develop our Armenian identity,” he says.
Ayb School has 41 more graduates to join the big alumni community and get involved in the Ayb mentorship program. Many of them have been already enrolled in the best universities of the world. But before they take off, a traditional collective dance is yet to be performed.
