On May 27, an audience of family and friends on The Bishop’s School Quad joined the 137 members of the Class of 2016, the school’s 107th graduating class, for the commencement ceremony.

Before giving diplomas and wishing them the best in their future endeavors, head of school Aimeclaire Roche told the graduates: “Wise as you will have become, so full of experience, Class of 2016. I dare say we have almost nothing left to give you now. Yes – a well-earned diploma, but buttressing it, our pride, and confidence and love.”
