Officially becoming Seniors

Back in the day, in most African communities, transitioning schoolboys from wearing shorts to wearing trousers was a symbol of maturity and honor. At AIS, the jacketing ceremony symbolizes a handing over of special authority from the school to the young adults.


The older students not only get a chance to hold higher positions in the student council but assist Heads of division in ensuring the student body operates as needed. AIS held its jacketing ceremony on the 24th of February, 2022. The event was led by the Head of School, Mrs. Audrey Doryumu.



Mrs. Doryumu, commonly known as Mrs. D positively admonished the students on the importance of responsibility, their duty to the school, students, staff, and what the symbolic ceremony meant for their future. The event was coordinated by Mr. Ishamel Odum and Mrs. Abigail Blay. All the division heads and the Academic dean were also present to witness the event.
