OFFICIALS have hailed the 16th graduation of students at the Ibn Khuldoon National School as one of the best yet.
A total of 113 pupils were honoured at a ceremony in the Gulf Hotel's Gulf International Convention and Exhibition Centre on Wednesday.
His Majesty King Hamad's son Shaikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa was among those who graduated.
Forty-two students left with International Baccalaureates (IB), 27 graduated from the Honour Society, three from the Student Congress, 11 with distinction and eight with high distinction.
School president Samir Chammaa, who was master of ceremonies at the event, was delighted with the results.
"This has been our largest group of students and we have put a lot of effort and work into coming out with these results," he said.
"We had a large number of students who passed with honours and this year we filled three out of the four places available for private schools on the Crown Prince's Scholarship Programme.
"It is amongst the best results we have achieved. More than 1,300 people attended the ceremony and there was not a single chair empty in the arena."
