Thanks to the vision and commitment of those who began the IB Diploma Programme at IST in 1990 and the great developments over the years, our current students are able to follow the rigorous academic programme we are proud to offer today. The vast range of options at Diploma level is intended to enhance students' possibility to excel in their chosen field of study at highly selective universities and in the careers which will follow.
The 2016-2017 academic year has marked the twenty-fifth anniversary of the awarding of the first IB Diplomas at the International School of Turin and on 16th June, the school will host a celebratory event which will bring together many key testimonials connected with the IB world. Members of the Graduating Class of 1992 will be present, along with IB Diploma Programme Graduates from the classes of 1997, 2002, 2007, 2012 and 2016. Ugo Nespolo, one of the most important Italian contemporary artists and parent of two IB Diploma recipients, and Dennis Lam, IB Diploma Graduate, co-founder of Lanterna Education, Kognity, IB Digital Textbooks and currently Senior Customer Success Manager at LinkedIn Talent Solutions, will be amongst our honoured guests.
We really feel this will be an informative event for our current students and their parents, for members of the community and for guests who are new to the IB philosophy. Our alumni from the Class of '92 are, in many respects, the "pioneers" of the IB Programme at IST and have lay the foundations for the many to come after them. All diploma candidates from this class and the ones that followed were successful in their quest to earn the Diploma, and these graduates are now making important contributions in their chosen professions. We are sure the thoughts they, along with other DP Graduates will share, will be enlightening and helpful and it will be an honour to make their voices as well as the voices of our distinguished guests , the focus of the event.
We look forward to hosting the event and to sharing our DP tradition.
