THE IMPORTANCE OF THE EXERCISE
It is a much revered ritual in educational institutions everywhere. At the end of every school year, graduating students, whether they're little kids in grade school or young adults in college, walk solemnly towards the stage elegantly garbed in their robes and tassels. One cannot underrate the significance of such a moment as every student's journey towards graduation is filled with all sorts of trials and challenges.
However, graduation is not so much an ending but a new beginning. For grade school students, graduation is the beginning of their adolescent adventures as they let go of their parents' embrace and test their wings in high school. For high school students, graduation is the beginning of their journey to self-discovery as they unravel what it is that they really want out of life in college. For college students, graduation is the beginning of their "real" lives as they fly out from the warmth and comfort of the university.
Graduation serves as a catalyst for students to relish in academic achievements and a way for parents to celebrate how proud they are of their children. This landmark in everyone's lifetime is a moment that is definitely worth remembering and cherishing. The graduation ceremony itself is a symbolic event that represents all of the hard work and accomplishments that students have partaken in to earn their status as a graduate.
