TALKING ABOUT A GRADUATION DAY CEREMONY AT OUR SCHOOL
My name is Jane and I am a form one student at James Sangu secondary school in Mbeya region at Mbozi district. On the 12thof September there was a form four graduation ceremony at our school. The ceremony started early at 8:00 am, the school bell rang and all student gathered in the assembly ground. After that, the teacher on duty gave all class leaders the event timetable, and told all of us to go to the assembly hall and seat as we were arranged the day before. Students had their rows, teachers sat on the time table and parents sat adjacent to the students.
At 9:00 am teachers entered in the assembly hall and all students and parents who came earlier stood to show respect. The headmistress then entered with the guest of honour; the Mbeya regional commissioner MR Abass Kandoro. After their entrance all students, teachers and others sat down. The headmistress introduced the guest of honour to the audience, then introduced teachers and the audience to the guest of honour. After the introductions there was a short speech from the headmistress welcoming all to the event. After this form two, and form four students sand farewell songs. A speech from a form four student head prefect followed , after which there was a speech from the school head and a closing speech by the guest of honour MR Kandoro.
After the speech Mr Kandoro handed out leaving certificates to form four students and awards to the best students of the year from form one to form four and I was among of them! I received a gift of Sh 50000 as the best form one student and leading in seven subjects. I was so happy and surprised by the money, which I'm planning to use to buy review books for my form two national examinations.
