Brighton JHS Kota Wisata Celebrates Its First Graduation Since the Pandemic

On Saturday (11/06), the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic, Brighton JHS School Kota Wisata branch held a graduation event for 2021-2022 junior high school graduates.

Sigit Permana (Managing Director of ABC Kids & Brighton JHS), Trinita Hestiana (Education Director), Teddy Irdanny (Assistant Managing Director), Muhammad Zakie Walad (Principal of Brighton JHS Kota Wisata), parents of graduates, teachers, and alumni of Brighton DDN also attended the graduation ceremony.

As an Education Director, Trinita Hestiana thanked the parents of school alumni for entrusting their children to be educated at Brighton JHS. At Brighton JHS, students continue to learn and improve their skills & knowledge to succeed in the future.

It is certainly not easy for Brighton JHS students and teachers to conduct three years of study amid the COVID-19 pandemic. However, even in difficult times, our teachers continue to strive to provide valuable learning experiences for students. Providing a memorable learning experience extends beyond academics, as teachers initiate students to network with their peers, teachers, and school staff despite being online. 

Trinita elaborated that this graduation ceremony had proven that parents, students, and teachers had successfully gone through the pandemic together. Such is a testament to the resiliency of all parties involved in difficult times.

“Let me now express my congratulations on your graduation. You are about to enter the next level of education. Participate and contribute as much as possible, and make the most of your time by bringing the good values you have learned at Brighton Junior High School, Kota Wisata, to the table.” Trinita said proudly.

“To all the children I am proud of, we had been fighting for more than two years to keep Indonesian education ahead of the curve. We had previously encountered the Covid 19 situation. Today is proof that we have overcome the obstacles and the outcome of your learning processes. And for teachers at Brighton JHS, keep on educating young generations, for they are the future leaders of our tomorrow. Thank you, parents, for choosing Brighton JHS. We sincerely apologize for any shortcomings. Fellow graduates, celebrate your successes; you have successfully climbed the steps to take the next journey!” addressed Mr. Zakie Walad.

Mr. Lukman, one of the parent representatives, stated that his child previously attended ABC Kids, Pre-K class, and then continued to study here at Brighton JHS. He also thanked all of the teachers and staff at the school for providing an education for their children. And, on behalf of the parents, apologizes for any errors or shortcomings. “Organizing this graduation event is challenging during a pandemic, and we appreciate this situation. And I feel that we have succeeded in getting our children through online education, which is a tremendous effort. Our hope for all teachers is prayers and blessings. Which, I am sure, will be granted, is for the future of the children’s education to be better every year,” he concluded.
