Graduation of Prep children to Grade 1
“The Capacity to learn is a gift; the ability to learn is a skill; the willingness to learn is a choice.” - BRAIN HERBERT
Graduation is an achievement to be savored; however it is only the beginning point of life's learning cycle. The starting point is always the bottom of the ladder - The first rung. For most people their graduation day is one of the best days of their lives. We remember that day for rest of our life. As adults we feel elevated when we are graduated, so as the children when they are graduated to Grade1. We are still cherishing the moments the day we graduated out from the college. Think what would be the state of the kids’ minds when they are stepping to Grade 1. This got their days off to a fun, relaxed and very kinder garten focused start. The March month gave the children a sense of delight as it was the last month in their Preparatory class and they are going to be graduated to Grade 1. The mere thought made them feel cheerful.
In the course of two years in Nursery and Preparatory, they not only have become masters in Alphabet, Numbers and a bit of Basic Grammar parts in English but also gained confidence, emotional control and prepared themselves to sail through Grade 1. The Prep children were indulged in many activities related to their Graduation. They coloured their Graduation Certificate and wrote their names, name of the school, age, and boy/girl. They were snapped with the Graduation Costume with the Diploma in hand, which was a moment in their lives to be proud and possessed. They also fit themselves into the frames with their Graduation Caps adorned on their heads which made their last foot print in the Prep Class.
The last two days of the academic session were precious to them as these days were a kind of kick-off for the children to the next grade with lots of experiences and experiments. Now they are ready to move on to many new discoveries and accomplishments.
The session ended with lots of memories and expectations about the next grade and the children went home with happy and cheerful faces.
