Our graduation has been a little different this year due to COVID-19 , where we were unable to invite any of our wonderful parents to our setting. Instead we went Facebook live and recorded the graduation party throughout. Graduation started at 2pm where there was an introductory talk by our nursery manager Kati, then we proceeded to invite the graduates up one by one and hand them their scrolls. The children also had a chance to wave and say hello to their families who were watching at home, which they thoroughly enjoyed. They sat down wonderfully wearing their graduation hats and holding their scrolls whilst Sarah gave a closing speech. We then proceeded to sing our graduation song ‘ABCya later’ which the children learnt all the words too singing them brilliantly with lots of energy.
After this we turned Facebook Live off and continued to record the party, which we uploaded to our Famly app for parents to see. We all had an amazing time dancing and playing some party games with all our friends before we sat down for our graduation buffet. The children enjoyed a selection of party food and a slice of our special graduation cake! Each child was given a ‘Graduation party bag’ to go home with which consisted of lovely keepsakes, gifts, photos and a yummy cupcake.
We would like to say a special thank you to all the children at Kidzrus Irlam that have graduated and wish them all the best of luck for the future. We will miss them very much and hope to see them soon.
