Mayor Praises ‘unique contribution’ of the College to the UK

The Mayor of Canterbury, Cllr Ian Thomas gave strong praise to CATS College Canterbury at the annual Graduation ceremony held in the Gulbenkian Theatre at the University of Kent.

He thanked the College and students for all their work in the local community commenting that the students were “true leaders of tomorrow."

Hundreds of students, parents and agents joined with staff to celebrate the culmination of another successful year at the College. Students achieved the highest ever University Foundation results and celebrate with offers from York, Bristol, Westminster, Durham universities amongst others all over the UK.

British IB Student Catherine Gregory performed Italian Commedia dell’Arte with Allyssa Sulaiman (picture on right) while the afternoon ended in traditional CATS College Canterbury style with an African fashion display!

Students, parents and staff mingled outside afterwards over refreshments celebrating the real achievements from a group of talented young people.

Principal, Jonathan Ullmer spoke warmly about what had been achieved over the past year:

"Our students this year have left cultural events, winning language leadership awards and triumphing over other UK schools in the Young Enterprise regional finals. It has been an amazing year for everyone with a real sense of community shining through and I am very proud to be part of this very special College."

As part of the Graduation ceremony, students performed with drama, dance, poetry and song making the event a real multicultural explosion of colour. Former CATS College student Andrea Obi returned to speak of her experience at the college. She has now graduated from university and works as a successful Pharmacist in the UK.
