Some of the highlights of this event were a video presentation showing Mgis Manila's achievements for the past 10 years and how it metamorphosed into a dynamic and reputable international educational institution as recognized by and affiliated with the International Baccalaureate (IB), International Primary Curriculum (IPC), International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) Cambridge and Department of Education Philippines (DepEd) and the recognition of MGIS students who excelled in the field of academics, higher education, theater arts and sports. Simply said, the celebration was impeccable!
