His Highness Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah, addressed the students virtually.

A drive-in graduation ceremony in Ras Al Khaimah saw high school students collect their education certificates even as they adhered to all social distancing and precautionary measures.

In a YouTube live video, the students of RAK Academy International Secondary School can be seen in parked vehicles around a stage. As each student’s name is called out, he/she comes up to the stage and collects the certificate after sanitising his/her hands. They are dressed for the occasion in graduation gowns and gloves and masks.

The highlight of the evening was when His Highness Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah, addressed the students virtually. His video message was broadcast on a large screen placed at the venue.

The students were also treated some high-octane music and a laser light show.

This ceremony is the latest in a string of innovative ceremonies planned or executed by education institutions even as physical learning remains suspended as a precautionary measure against the spread of Covid-19.

On Friday, the Canadian University Dubai displayed images of its graduating class on the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.
Dubai-based American University in the Emirates said last week that it would host a drive-in graduation ceremony where drones would confer degrees on the students.
