Twenty-two schools in Jordan have held ceremonies to celebrate the academic achievements of 664 students who have successfully completed Cambridge Primary Checkpoint tests. The tests are typically taken at the end of primary education and are marked by Cambridge International.
At the ceremonies, students were presented with caps and sashes by Asma Tarawneh, Country Manager for Cambridge International in Jordan. Asma also gave a speech congratulating the students on their accomplishments.
'It's heartening to see Cambridge young learners filled with joy and pride at the Cambridge Primary Checkpoint ceremonies taking place in Jordan,' says Asma. ‘These ceremonies are a testament to students' hard work and passion for learning, and to the commitment of Cambridge and their schools to recognise their great efforts! Congratulations to all students on their achievements and to their wonderful teachers on the tireless efforts to shape the future of our learners.'
Ms Lama Salhab, Director of International Schools, Islamic Educational College Jordan said: 'It was a great pleasure to have Ms Asma Tarawneh award IEC British Program Grade 6 students for their performance in the Cambridge Checkpoint tests. The ceremony celebrates the strong partnership with Cambridge International and the Islamic Educational College Schools in Jordan. We look forward to celebrating more students and achievements in the future.'
Mohammad Al Natour, Head of International Programme, College De La Salle Amman, said: ‘As our school is celebrating the excellent achievement of our primary level students passing Cambridge Checkpoint tests, I would like to express our appreciation for the support of Cambridge International as well as our teachers and parent community. We look forward to more collaboration and a fruitful partnership with Cambridge, and to more celebrations of success in the future.'
