This week I will talk about my Graduation ceremony and the following party. Everything started off normally on June 20 until I arrived at school. In the gym, all the grade 8’s practiced for the graduation ceremony. We were put into pairs in alphabetical order. Once we had our pairs, we would practice walking into the ceremony. After practicing, I was the only grade 8 in the school. Since I didn’t want to be the only grade 8, I called mommy and asked if I could come home. When I got home, it was still 11 am. After eating lunch and taking a nap, it was 2 pm.
When everyone got home, we left the house at 5 pm. When we reached the hall, some of my classmates had already arrived. Soon, almost everyone from the grade had arrived and it was time for the group picture. After the picture, we all walked outside and prepared for the ceremony. When we walked into the room again, our parents were already there. Like we practiced in the gym, we received our diploma. Once everyone received their diploma, we watched our graduation video. When that was over, everyone walked outside the room, the parents left and the children went to eat dinner.
The dinner was not as bad as I thought it would be. We had salad, pasta, fries, chicken strips, and bread. Besides food, we had Coke, Diet Coke, Coke Zero, Sprite, and Sprite Zero. After eating, the dancing started. The music was very loud and you could hear it from most parts of the room. Some other people and I spent most of our time at the dance floor corner. After the dancing stopped, it was time to go home. I personally liked the graduation ceremony and I look forward to high school.
