Goodbye, for now
DHPS bids farewell to its 2019 Abitur graduates
12 November 2019 | Education
The event not only marked the end of the young people’s school career, but above all, the beginning of unlimited opportunities with a bilingual and globally recognised graduation certificate, the Deutsches Internationales Abitur (DIA-German International Abitur).
Once again, this year the Abitur learners put in special effort to reach this milestone: The young adults really can be proud of an overall average of 2.27, with 18 reaching a 1 before the decimal point and two finishing with a 1.0.
This definitely fills the school community with pride, as was demonstrated at the awarding of the Abitur certificates on 1 November. Not only do the awards for outstanding achievements in the (foreign) languages, natural and social sciences, sports as well as in the artistic field, testify to the diversity of these young people, the special prizes for extraordinary social commitment and versatility impressed the community.
In this vein, a heartfelt thank you is extended to Pupkewitz Toyota, Deloitte & Touche, Luisen Pharmacy, the German Embassy in Windhoek, the Deutscher Schulverein Windhoek (1949), Förderverein deutscher Auslandsschulen zu Hamburg (the Association of German Schools Abroad in Hamburg) and all other award donors and sponsors.
DHPS principal Kristin Eichholz also looked back proudly on the Class of 2019, expressing her wishes, which were specially tailored as a reflection for the young people of this grade. “Keep the team spirit that you have shown during Abitur, in crises and in times of joy, and become part of success stories, projects and ideas. Preserve and appreciate your individuality, the uniqueness that each of you brings with you. Have the courage to realise your dreams and place your passions the centre of your lives.”
