On November 7, 2016, the Chapel was abuzz with the excitement of the 2016 graduates. This was the day we’ve all been waiting for, especially after it has been rescheduled more than once due to safety issues. From the opening procession to all the speeches, the atmosphere was filled with anticipation. The moving of the tassel and the presenting of the diplomas came and went. Finally, gathered in front of the stage, we threw our caps as one. “Class of 2016!” we shouted, ecstatic that we were truly done at last.
The celebrations lingered in the Chapel as we chatted and took countless pictures with family, friends, and teachers. Gradually, we made our way to the canteen to continue the festivities with dinner. Tears were hardly seen as we laughed and relived all the memories that brought us to this day, cherishing this once-in-a-lifetime moment.
Time really does fly, and even our graduation ended too quickly. Yet, one thing is for sure: while the graduation concluded our unforgettable time in high school, it also served as a wonderful opening to a fresh, new chapter in our lives.
