THIS is only the beginning, said Tengku Putri Nor Zehan Almarhum Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah to the graduating 155 students of Prime Group of Colleges at their third convocation ceremony recently.
“This is not the end of your studies because the learning process is a lifelong process. You will not only be judged on what you have learnt but also how you can put these skills to practical use to help our young generation grow and prosper” said the guest-of-honour, adding that graduates should always keep abreast with the latest knowledge in their fields of study.
A total of 101 students from Summit International College received their diplomas in Montessori Childhood Education, while 54 from MSC International College received their diplomas in various creative courses including Industrial Design, Interior Design, Performing Arts and Animation.
