After the mass and the graduation rites, students and their families went to Holiday Inn for the reception and awarding ceremony. Graduation here is a lot different than the ones we have back home. Never the less, it was a great moment for our first born. I can't believe that she have graduated from St. Joseph already.
Their homeroom teacher, Mrs. Ferguson made this Name initial project and have them decorated it with pictures. They were displayed at the reception hall. I thought that was a really nice touch to the special occasion.
I got the chance to take some photos of these beautiful young ladies before before the awarding ceremony started.

I'm not quite sure if these cakes were also provided by the homeroom moms or by the caterer. It's hard to recall the details since a year have passed already.

Looking at these kids made me realized how time flies. I can remember how little they were when they all first met in kindergarten.

We chose to continue her education to Catholic School. It's true that it's expensive but I think it's worth every cent we spent for our children. They're smart and seeing their grades is like our reward for a money well spent. Our son will be in 8th grade this and hopefully, Covid19 will be gone by the time he graduates.
