The graduation ceremonies of the class of 2020 of Gateway Colleges Negombo and Dehiwala were held last week with the customary elegance and splendour while maintaining safety protocol at all times. Gateway Negombo had theirs in the school auditorium and Gateway Dehiwala chose the Water’s Edge hotel for their celebration. The colourful celebrations were attended by the school management, academic staff, graduates and their family members.
Following tradition, this year too, the students of the class of 2020 organised the functions with the support of their teachers. Each event was a testament to the talents and abilities of students who had gone above and beyond to make them memorable occasions. The ceremonies marked the culmination of the years of hard work and focused effort of the students, who have all achieved great success.
While commemorating the school careers of the students, the ceremonies also herald grand beginnings for each young adult who will now step into a new phase in life. This year, students of Gateway received offers from prestigious universities such as the University of Cambridge, Imperial College London, St. Andrew’s University Scotland, University College London, Loughborough University, University of Melbourne, New York University, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), University of Toronto, National University of Singapore (NUS) and Yale – NUS, Singapore. Despite the setbacks of 2020, students have performed well and can look forward to more success in the days ahead.
