I was a student at KTACSS from a very young age, and to me KTACSS was more than just a place to socialise with other Armenians. It was a starting point. I made deep and meaningful friendships which are still strong today; something all Armenians need now more than ever. The teachers’ love for Armenia also really passed onto us, and we can now pass this onto our friends, both Armenian and non-Armenian. Having the opportunity to learn about our nation’s history, culture, and the development of our language also gave meaning to our pride. Some Sundays it may have felt like a chore to get up for school, but on graduation day everyone always wishes they could stay for another year.
