I want to take this opportunity to congratulate these winners, their proud teachers, and their parents for their endless support that helped guide these young achievers in their remarkable journey to success."
Maxim Raimann, Exams Director, General Manager, Nepal, British Council, said “It is my absolute pleasure to have this opportunity to write a few words about the young people whose achievements were are celebrating today. Individually, they have every right to be extremely proud of themselves, as do the parents, guardians, teachers and school leaders who have all contributed to the environment that has allowed them to flourish. I am also proud of the British Council’s part in providing the opportunity for these students to pursue their passions and take another step towards realising their potential. From Accounting to Art and Design, Biology to Business Studies, Chemistry to Computer Science, English to Environment Management, Mathematics to Media Studies, and Physics to Psychology, the sheer breadth of subjects in which these students have excelled makes me so very optimistic for the future of Nepal. And, as well as in-depth subject knowledge, Cambridge qualifications have given them an excellent foundation in adaptable skills such as communication and critical thinking, which are valued tools in the worlds of higher education and employment. Today we recognise the successes of these young people but we must also urge them to see this as just one step in a continuous path of lifelong learning. I wish them well on this journey and hope that they will be able to celebrate many more such milestones in the years to come.”
