Kitah Chet's virtual and beautiful Graduation Ceremony took place yesterday. Students reflected on their time at Yavneh and their journey ahead.
Excerpts from grad speeches:
"Yavneh taught me that no matter how cold the water in front of you may be, you shouldn’t be afraid to jump in, because you’re not doing it alone, and you end up swimming all together. "
"Yaneh spends a great deal of time teaching us how to be good students, and better people. From a young age we are taught how to problem solve, public speak, challenge ourselves, be good people, and form bonds that will last a lifetime." - Solly
"Yavneh has also given me the educational tools that I will need in High School and beyond by not just teaching me
what to learn, but by teaching me
how to learn." -Noa
"From learning songs and prayers for milestones, to leading a song or an activity in front of the whole school. These moments helped me to believe in myself. No matter what, I always felt the support from my teachers, and that gave me the confidence to keep going." -Maya
"Yavneh has taught me many lessons, but the most prevalent was that there is always more than one way to look at an issue or accomplish a goal. By working with hevruta we have tested our abilities to think outside the box and to challenge ourselves and our presumptions. Although, first we have to understand that there is a difference between being smart and quick-witted and being wise and worldly. Yavneh has shown us that difference. And therefore we are wiser because of it." -Sophia
