Summer School @LUMS (SSL) celebrated the completion of its remarkable 2018 session on Saturday, July 14, 2018 with a vibrant and memorable Closing Ceremony. The Summer School @LUMS Session had commenced three weeks earlier on June 23, 2018 with many new faces and concluded with the formation of lifelong friendships.
The SSL 2018 session was a fun-filled and jam-packed three weeks with more than 200 participants enrolled, and this ceremony marked the successful end of an unforgettable experience for all of them. The ceremony commenced as the SSL management team welcomed the enthusiastic audience of participants and their parents and congratulated them on the completion of the programme. This was followed by the screening of a few short films as well as live guitar performances by the students.
The Head of SSL, Masooma Zeeshan, then addressed the audience and reminisced over how wonderful the past few weeks had been. For a better glimpse of how much of an adventure the experience was, the audience was entertained with a short video of the amazing SSL journey.
The keynote speaker for the evening was the Dean of the Shaikh Ahmad Hassan School of Law (SAHSOL), Prof. Dr. Martin Lau, who took to the stage and both congratulated and motivated the graduating participants through his inspirational speech. This was followed by the distribution of certificates to all the graduating SSL participants, and acknowledgement of the hard work put in by the SSL faculty and management team. After a tour of the colourful art gallery on display, consisting of the work created by the talented students of Fun with Clicks, Painting and Pottery, the evening finally ended with live musical performances and an enjoyable dinner arrangement.
There were many tearful goodbyes and pictures taken to capture the moments of the Closing Ceremony and commemorate the memorable SSL 2018 experience.
